Summary
  • "Fully revised and updated, this new edition of English in Practice aims to define or redefine our purposes for studying English. It is for all those who are about to embark on an English degree or are in the midst of completing one, and for those who want to re-engage with their reasons for teaching it. Including five new chapters, English in Practice outlines key topics such as literary criticism and theory, English as language, online resources and advice on writing a dissertation. The book works through a series of fully developed examples rather than abstract exposition, encouraging student readers to think for themselves"--
  • "Aimed at those who are taking or teaching English degrees, this book is a reflective overview of the discipline's core and why we study it"--
