Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch (1863-1944), who often published under the pen-name of 'Q', was one of the giants of early twentieth-century literature and literary criticism. A novelist and poet who was also a Professor of English, he helped to form the literary tastes of generations of literary students and scholars who came after him. The freshness, enthusiasm and intellectual insight of his work is still evident in his writings nearly a century on. Cambridge University Press is delighted to reissue some of his key texts in this new edition. A collection of essays on Victorian writers of fiction: Charles Dickens, William Makepeace Thackeray, Benjamin Disraeli, Elizabeth Gaskell and - perhaps most surprisingly - Anthony Trollope, whom Quiller-Couch sees as 'one of our greatest English novelists'.
