Entries generally range from a few words to summary essays with bibliographies for further study, and cross-references lead from definitions to larger concepts. A practical qChronology of Literature and World Eventsq, at the end of the text presents a comprehensive timeline from the earliest cities of Mesopotamia to contemporary names and titles.Arranged in alphabetical order, this Handbook aims to satisfy curiosity about terms such as syzygy or zeugma, concepts such as structuralism or phenomenology, and literary genres and movements such as Drama or Goliardic verse.
