Author Biography

Henry Eliot is the Creative Editor of Penguin Classics. Before joining Penguin he organized various literary tours, including a mass public pilgrimage for the National Trust (inspired by William Morris), a recreation of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales which raised money for the National Literacy Trust, a Lake Poets tour of Cumbria and a quest for the Holy Grail based on Malory's Morte D'Arthur. He is the author of Follow This Thread and Curiocity (with Matt Lloyd-Rose).

Review

I can't imagine a better or more beautifully presented reference for a book-lover -- Waterstones.com review The perfect gift for bibliophiles The Arts Society UK Smartly illustrated with original cover artwork-ideal for glancing over dearly loved literary companions, as well as for discovering gaps to fill . . . This is a fascinating survey of how our nation's literary tastes have altered over the years and makes us wonder anew at what constitutes a 'classic'. -- Emily Rhodes Country Life Beautifully designed and lovingly compiled The Spectator
