Hi,

I am studying for a competitive examination, in order to get a job as an English teacher. For that reason, I have to study the history of British and American literature and its most prominent writers and their works.

The thing is, not having studied philology but translation studies, that we're talking about books I have not read myself but only read about or seen the movie. Some of them I have read, some others I had never even heard about.

I want to get to know these books, but lack the time to actually read them. So, my English speaking friends: can you recommend me of a webpage with general plot summaries and maybe some background info for all the classics of English literature?

You would be saving my life :)
