Julien D. Bonn (Editor) Julien D. Bonn (Compiler)
Synopsis There are numerous terms related to subjects that we are unaware of. Here, in this series we have introduced various dictionaries that will enrich your sphere of knowledge. The series comprises dictionaries on a number of subjects. All the science students can make use of dictionaries of Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, etc. For students of Arts, they can refer to dictionaries of Economics, History, Literature, etc. Other than that one can also read and make use of the dictionaries of Civil Engineering, Commerce, Mathematics, Education, Music, etc. The reader can also come to know more about the various technological terms in the dictionaries of subjects like Medical Lab Technology and Rubber Technology. On the whole, these dictionaries are a broad spectrum of various terms related to the subject. Many people think of literature as a subject for wooly-headed people. They do not realize that literature and criticism at their highest levels are as technical as a science subject. And, like any science, literature and criticism have spawned a vast body of technical worlds or jargan. Which changes in the social relations and experiences, political winds and gales, literature too changes its form and the critic follows the changing literary scene, inventing new words to describe new reality. Critics are more influenced by philosophical currents than poets and novelists and try to interpret literature, past and present, using complex philosophical jargon. As all students of literature are aware, the current fashion is that the most jargon-ridden of all philosophies is post Modernism. All this goes to show that a handy dictionary like this on literature, giving various verse forms, literary theories, philosophies and present concerns briefly and lucidly, is to be highly recommended. It shall, without doubt, prove invaluable to both the students of literature as well as a general reader.
