About The Book
The present thirteenth volume of Studies in Literature in English contains seventeen well-researched essays covering a wide range of authors and subjects across space and time. Starting with the good old Shakespeare, the essays cover a number of British canonical authors, including Coleridge, Shelley and Golding. Across the Atlantic eminent American authors like Henry James, Arthur Miller and Saul Bellow are given fresh look. Rohinton Mistry from Canada, Hermann Hesse, a German Nobel Laureate, and Bertolt Brecht of ‘epic theatre’ fame from Germany, V.S. Naipaul, the Nobel Laureate originally from India, and Pirandello, the Italian Nobel Laureate, are all treated with fine critical insight.
It is hoped that students, scholars and general readers of English literature will find this anthology both useful and enjoyable even more than the earlier volumes of Studies in Literature in English.
