I found I couldn't keep my attention on the book even 150 pages in. The way in which he describes the english imagination is only linear in the way that all events are in order. He doesn't give even a brief explanation of every author and book he writes about. This book is only for people who take great interest in the past of English literature and already know a good deal about it.
