They Wrote in English

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’). An unusual feature of the work is that chronologically Burgess’s treatment of the history of literature in English proceeds backwards. (Photo of volume 1 black edition by C. Knight)
