Abstract:

A tremendous collection of literature has been produced by Londoners and about London, and in this 1913 volume, University of Chicago literature professor Percy H. Boynton explores the rich literary heritage of the English cultural capital. Boynton takes the reader on a journey from the medieval walled town of Geoffrey Chaucer to the cosmopolitan metropolis known by authors of the Victorian age, providing valuable historical and social context along the way. For the dedicated scholar (or for those just interested in traveling back to another period of London history), Boynton also provides bibliographies of significant works from each major historical period as well as an extensive list of novels illustrative of London life.
