Wow, thanks! It is so useful for me. I am preparing for my English literature classes! I will try to do something similar to use it.

I love English literature. I have read many literary works to trace the chronology of the development of English literature. I don't like history at all, but if a conversation about the history of literature comes up in my circle of friends, then I cannot be stopped here. I even work in literature review service I really enjoy writing literature reviews for students. Unfortunately, contemporary works do not impress me as much as the works of literary classics.
