British Authors and Texts: Critical Responses

Chhote Lal Khatri (Editor)
Synopsis It is a pleasure to present this book to the discerning readers of English Literature as it constitutes, mainly academicians and scholars to the British novelists and poets and their texts. The eighteen essays included in it are well researched, comprehensive and insightful. Since the texts studied here are classics in Literature they are amenable to multiple interpretations. Every age discovers a new meaning, a new dimension in the classics. It is all the more interesting and objective to view the authors and the texts with a distance of time and space. The distance provides the authors an opportunity to reevaluate the text in a changed perspective of time and to see the difference of result. The criticism, thus, becomes more objective and relevant to the time. In a way it points to the need of reevaluation of the classical works in the present context. The volume covers a broad spectrum of English Literature from the origin and development of the short story and evaluation of Plato’s Republic to Graham Greene George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Conrad, E.M. Forster, Virginia Woolf, T.S. Eliot. Papers on Myth, Browning’s Poetry, Richard Steele, Jane Austen, Rudyard Kipling, D.H. Lawrence, D. Lawrence are no less insightful and scholarly. I hope the students of English Literature will find the book extremely useful, and the common readers will also find it refreshingly interesting.
