Studies in Literature in English free pdf The twenty brilliant essays that constitute this volume offer new insights into old authors. Starting with the Bard of Avon, the good old Shakespeare, perennial and inexhaustible, we make an intellectual excursion into the world of the English canonical authors: Wordsworth, Coleridge, Jane Austen, Keats, Emily Bronte, W.B. Yeats, Virginia Woolf, D.H. Lawrence, T.S. Eliot, George Orwell and William Golding. Then, for a change, we meet the noted American critic, R.S. Crane and conclude our excursion with a visit to the celebrated Canadian critic, Northrop Frye. It is really fascinating to see how all these old authors are still amenable to new interpretations, and, more importantly, how they stand the test and the taste of modern critics. It is amazing, for example, to see how brilliantly Shakespeare comes off even when examined by the Indian criteria of the poetic relish. One special attraction of this volume is the classic essay by the great nineteenth century American expert, James Russell Lowell, who guides us through the world of Wordsworth and reveals before us the essential Wordsworth with all his achievements and limitations. Anybody going through this volume is bound to be impressed as much by the extraordinary richness and variety of subjects as by the critical insights of the authors. Since the authors discussed in this volume are studied in all the universities, the teachers, scholars, and students of Literature in English will find this book extremely useful. The common readers who are interested in Literature in English will also experience this book as a delightful and rewarding intellectual excursion.
