They Wrote in English was published in Italy, and there is also a Japanese edition. The 1979 edition (Milan: Tramontana) is in two volumes: the first is Burgess’s history of literature in English, the second an anthology (which also includes poetry by ‘F.X. Enderby’). The Burgess expert Mr Yves Buelens points out that the strikingly original feature of the work, distinguishing it from the earlier English Literature: A Survey for Students, is that chronologically it proceeds backwards.
