Somewhere we all like literature and loves to read and know about it. It has my first experience of reading that kind of book, and I love it a lot. Subhajit Bhadra writes ‘Readings in World Literature’ book. He has written and published many books like (Animal Discourse in Literature, Texts in Contexts and Reflections on Literature in English Written in India and Beyond, Literature & Environmental- Discourse). As you can notice it by the titles of his book that he loves to write about the literature.
Subhajit Bhadra belongs from Guwahati, Assam, and he is on 40 levels of his life. He is a freelance writer, poet, critic, and translator. He has written a book on the History of English literature. At present, he is an Assitant professor in the department of English at Bongaigaon College, Assam. He is a Voracious reader of world literature and divides his time between teaching and traveling.
In Readings in World Literature is a non-fictional book, the author has shed light on a few canonical Western and Indian texts and also on specific relatively unknown texts and writers. In the present-day context, the relevance of world literature has become more prominent because of globalization, and the rapid increase of the technological industry.
This book is not a simple book that can be narrated as a good book or otherwise in terms of a review. You have to look and experience the book. In simple terms, you have to analyze this book. The book contents are (A Critical Reading of J.M.Coetzee’s Disgrace, The Masked protagonist in Saul Bellow’s Seize the Day, An Engaging and Astounding Narrative, Krishna Sobti, Jnanpith Award, and Assamese Literature, etc.) Each chapter contains several best articles. The author tried to make it comprehensive and best.
In the chapter, a review of Shera Panchashti Golpo’s 50 best short stories by novelist Nilanjan Chattopadhyay are presented. In the realm of contemporary Bengali Literature, Nilanjan Chattopadhyay has carved a niche for himself by his short stories, which are examples of the rich literature of the said culture. Here the author beautifully mentioned the articles in every chapter, which creates interest while reading it. To the end of this review, I would like to suggest that you read it only if you have an interest in this. Once you develop that interest, it will keep on engaged. Otherwise, if you think that the book does not have any interesting thing for you, you might be wondering for the customary offerings from this book which, you will not get!
So the book has certain limitations. It is a book for lovers of literature and articles. If you are interested in reading articles and literature, then you must grab the copies from the Amazon.
