Overview

An Introduction to the Study of Literature sets forth, in a simple and lucid manner, the issues and questions to be kept in mind while studying the vast canon of English literature. It takes much of its substance from a series of twenty - five lectures delivered before University Extension audiences at the Municipal Technical Institute, West Ham and the Polytechnic, Woolwich. This book compresses the matter from these lectures, along with a good deal of additional information, to provide a compact and handy guide that should prove extremely useful to new students of literature as well as veterans in the subject. Comprising ways and methods to study various genres such as poetry, prose fiction, drama, essay and short story, it covers every facet of literature. It also analyses the task of critiquing literature to bring out the necessity of studying the subject. A must - read for all literature aficionados.
