About the Authors
  • This is an expansion of the first dictionary of symbols to be based on literature, rather than on 'universal' psychological archetypes or myths. It explains and illustrates the literary symbols that we frequently encounter (such as swan, rose, moon, gold) and gives thousands of cross-references and quotations. The dictionary concentrates on English literature, but its entries range widely from the Bible and classical authors to the twentieth century, taking in American and European literatures. For this third edition, Michael Ferber has included some twenty completely new entries (such as birch, childbirth, grove, mill and railroad) and has added to many of the existing entries. Its rich references make this book an essential tool not only for literary and classical scholars but also for all students of literature.

    • A helpful and unique dictionary explaining and illustrating traditional symbols used in literature
    • Includes twenty completely new entries, such as birch, childbirth, grove, mill and railroad, in addition to updated existing entries
    • Essential, informative and entertaining reading for all students and scholars of literature
