Promotional Information

From Chaucer's scientific writings to the enduring appeal of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Anglo-American literature has enjoyed a close if turbulent relationship with science. This symbiosis is explored in a work that spans six centuries and deals with key scientific discoveries and seminal works of literature in a lively and informative style.

About the Author

John H. Cartwright is senior lecturer at the University of Chester, Chester, England and a historian of science. Brian Baker, PhD, is senior lecturer in literature at the University of Chester, Chester, England and an authority on Anglo-American film and literature.


"Rather than producing an encyclopedia the size of a major planet, Cartwright and Baker focus on authors, periods and topics that reveal something significant about the relationship between literature and science." - Reference & Research Book News "A thoughful, useful textbook that provides a robust historical survey aimed at the undergraduate." - Isis
