If you wish to purchase single copies of any of our publications, please email us before completing your purchase:

The English Association Newsletter is sent to every member and keeps you up to date with all of the Association's activities and news.

Our 7 Bookmarks series provide independent resources for readers wishing to broaden their engagement with literature and are available free of charge.

If you are interested in poetry then A Mutual Friend: Poems for Charles Dickens and Larkin with Poetry may well interest you.

For classroom teachers we have two dedicated journals:

  • English 4-11 is essential reading for English in the primary classroom
  • The Use of English contains a wide range of articles by teachers and researchers who represent the full spectrum of secondary English teaching

We have several publications for those involved in Higher Education and research:

Our occasional series Issues in English deals with developments in English studies and the teaching of English at all levels.

English 4-11

English 4-11 is the only journal dedicated to English in the primary classroom. It is a joint publication of the English Association and the United Kingdom Literacy Association.

First published in 1991 as Primary English, the journal was re-named in 1997 to reflect an increasing range of coverage.

Published three times an academic year (Autumn, Spring, Summer), the magazine contains material produced by, and for, the classroom teacher, practical resources, successful projects and reviews of books, videos, software and other resources. It is intended for all those involved in English in the primary classroom.

Established in 1995, the English 4-11 Picture Book Awards are given annually for the best illustrated children’s books of the year in four categories, Fiction and Non-Fiction for 4-7 yrs and 7-11 yrs. The prizes are awarded at the Association’s Annual General Meeting each May, and the winning and short-listed books are featured in a full-colour insert in the summer issue of the journal.

Subscription to English 4-11 brings with it membership of the primary section of the English Association, including the right to attend conferences and to purchase other Association publications at reduced rates. Members of the SubscribeAssociation are also encouraged to participate in the Fellowship scheme.

The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory

The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory ISBN: 9780198863366
ISSN: 1077-4254

Published for the English Association by Oxford University Press

Electronic access available to subscribers

The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory is a companion volume to The Year's Work in English Studies, also published for the English Association by Oxford University Press. It provides a narrative bibliography of work in the field of critical and cultural theory, recording significant debates and issues of interest in a broad field of research in the humanities and social sciences.

YWCCT should be valuable to a range of readers. The journal is aimed at scholars who wish to be informed of current debates and major publications on a given subject, whether they are seeking orientation in an area to which they are new or keeping up with developments in their own field.

No collection of this kind can claim to be complete in its incorporation of publications so chapters rarely seek to be fully comprehensive, but look instead to trace and expand upon currents in critical and cultural theory, and to engage in some of their areas’ key debates. In this way, YWCCT functions not only as a bibliographical tool and overview, but also as a forum for lively interventions.

As the chapters show, debate within and across these groupings is lively and attests to a vibrant interdisciplinarity and ever-shifting foci. The editors continue to work to find ways of mapping the changing landscape of critical and cultural theory by incorporating new topics while not overlooking developments within more established debates.


The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory is edited by Professor Emma Mason and Professor Christina Lupton, University of Warwick

The Arts of Peace

An Anthology of Poetry edited by Adrian Blamires and Peter Robinson

Poetry First World WarThe first of August 1914 saw the beginning of the war that was to end all wars and which, instead, ushered in a century of armed conflicts, two of them described as global.

This anthology’s title is borrowed from Andrew Marvell’s ‘Horatian Ode upon Cromwell’s Return from Ireland’, in which he deprecates ‘the inglorious arts of peace’. With this gathering of newly composed poems, and against that grain, this anthology looks to celebrate all that is left behind in times of conflict and which conflict is so often evoked to defend.

In this spirit, Adrian Blamires and Peter Robinson have edited a collection of poems that address peace and war from an unusually varied range of angles. The more than fifty contributors include Fleur Adcock, Robyn Bolam, Vahni Capildeo, Fred D’Aguiar, Gerald Dawe, Jane Draycott, Elaine Feinstein, Roy Fisher, Debora Greger, Philip Gross, Angela Leighton, William Logan, Allison McVety, Bill Manhire, John Matthias, Anthony Rudolf, Carol Rumens, Elizabeth Smither and Gregory Woods.

About the editors:

Adrian Blamires teaches Creative Writing at the University of Reading, where he is also working on a PhD in Renaissance drama. He is the author of two collections of poetry, The Effect of Coastal Processes (2005) and The Pang Valley (2010), both from Two Rivers Press.

Peter Robinson is the author of many books of poetry, translations, aphorisms, short fiction and literary criticism, and has been the recipient of the Cheltenham Prize, the John Florio Prize and two Poetry Book Society Recommendations. His most recent publications include Foreigners, Drunks and Babies: Eleven Stories (Two Rivers Press), a chapbook of poems, Like the Living End (Worple Press) and The Oxford Handbook of Contemporary British and Irish Poetry, which he edited. He is Head of the Department of English Literature at the University of Reading and literary editor of Two Rivers Press.

Welcome to this edition of the English Association’s occasional journal, Issues in English, a publication that has in the past covered topics as diverse as travel writing, teaching literature of the World Wars and the Shoah, and Brexit. After the events of the past few months, it seems entirely appropriate that this edition of Issues should focus on the effect of COVID-19 on the discipline of English, both in schools and in universities, and reflect on what is happening and how we are responding while we are, as Ben Davis so aptly puts it, ‘in the midst of things’. This issue catches contributors’ experiences of the initial phase of the pandemic: our abrupt and discombobulating transition to life online. As a member, here is your complimentary PDF copy.

Centenary History - The English Association One Hundred Years On

Centenary History - The English Association One Hundred Years On

Professor William Baker, Professor Elaine Treharne and Helen Lucas

We are pleased to announce the publication of the Association’s Centenary History written by Professor William Baker (Northern Illinois University), Professor Elaine Treharne (University of Leicester) and Helen Lucas (English Association).

This centennial history is in essence an account of the English profession and of literary and language criticism over a one hundred year period from pre-Bradley, Dowden, Wilson Knight, F.R. Leavis and many others, to the post-structuralist, post-colonial world and beyond.

Created in 1906, the English Association founders included school teachers, educationalists and academics such as A.C. Bradley. Its aims were 'to promote the due recognition of English as an essential element in the national education and to help in maintaining the effectiveness of the language in both its spoken and its written use.' Forever protean, the Association has survived the ravages of two world wars, traumatic transformations in English studies and in the educational universe.

Drawing upon primary materials, this centenary history documents the English Association’s path during its first hundred years. An account of its beginnings is followed by the story of its adaptation to historical transformations, its publications and its personalities. The English Association: One Hundred Years On is a celebration of the Association’s achievements to date—and a wonderful starting point for its consideration for the future.
