A Handbook to Literary Researchis a vital, one of a kind student resource, which has been written specifically for those embarking on a Masters degree in Literature. It provides an introduction to research techniques, methodologies and information sources relevant to the study of literature at postgraduate level. The unique and invaluable guide is divided into four sections:

* a practical guide to the uses of research libraries, research sources and computers, including the Internet
* an introduction to the work of textual scholars and bibliographers, focusing particularly on the practical and theoretical issues faced by textual editors
* an overview of literary research and literary theory, including outlines of feminist theory, deconstruction, reader-response and reception theory, new historicism, and post-colonial theory
* a detailed guide on how to write and present a Masters, including a glossary and checklist for finding guides, reference books and other study sources.
