This Companion explores the Bible's role and influence on individual writers, whilst tracing the key developments of Biblical themes and literary theory through the ages.


  • An ambitious overview of the Bible's role and influence on English literature - as arguably the most powerful work of literature in history - from the medieval period up through the 20th century

  • Includes introductory sections to each period giving background information about the Bible as a source text in English literature, and placing writers in their historical context

  • Draws on examples from medieval, early-modern, eighteenth-century and Romantic, Victorian, and Modernist literature

  • Includes many 'secular' or 'anti-clerical' writers alongside their 'Christian' contemporaries, revealing how the Bible's text shifts and changes in the writing of each author who reads and studies it
