  Reading a complete novel vs reading just the summary - what's the right approach?
Posted by: RohanGupta - 08-11-2019, 01:26 PM - Forum: Studying Novels - Replies (2)

I am very curious to know this. As a student of literature, a person is supposed to read many novels included in his syllabus. However, there is often a limitation of time - sometimes examinations and sometimes it's about reading things other than the novel. Should one read all the novels completely or it can be managed by reading the summaries and understanding the critical points? What do you think, guys? Please answer me.

  What are the best books to study history of English literature?
Posted by: Simran - 07-21-2019, 12:26 AM - Forum: Basic but Essential Questions related to literature - Replies (1)

I think this the basic question and can be asked here. I want to know from other members and experts here on this literature forum about the best books to study history of English literature. Which are the books that you will suggest to a complete beginner? And also, which are the books that you will suggest to a person who has completed his or her graduation? I know some names like Cazamian and David Daiches' books. Are they useful to study the history of English literature at all grades? Please help. Thanks!

  Most representative English novels of the 21st century
Posted by: Lucian Hodoboc - 06-20-2019, 06:26 PM - Forum: 21st Century or Contemporary Literature - Replies (2)

Which are, in your opinion, the most representative English novels of the 21st century? Each of the previous centuries has had its share of novels that have stood out and remained in history not only as magnum opi, but also as symbols of the literary periods in which they were published.

In this thread, I invite you to name the best novels published in English since 1 January 2000. Huh
