What is the justification for bringing out a complete Objective History of English Literature through Multiple-Choice Questions? The justification lies in the fact that recently all Service Commissions, Recruitment Boards and UGC have started conducting their competitive examinations through the pattern of Objective-cum-Multiple-Choice Questions. Many Universities have also started setting one full Question on the same pattern in each Paper at the Post-Graduate level. As such, this Book would be immensely useful, even indispensable, for all candidates preparing for NET/JRF/SET and PGT, TGT, PG and Ph.D. Entrance Test and equivalent competitive examinations. As far as our knowledge goes, no other complete History of English Literature designed on this pattern is available in the market.
As the Contents would show, all the important phases and aspects of English Literature have been fully brought out and discussed in the Book in the Objective Form. All the literary Ages from the Chaucerian to the Modern Age, all literary Schools and Movements, all literary Forms of Poetry, Drama, Prose, Novel, and Criticism, and all the major Authors individually from Chaucer to T.S. Eliot have been fully analysed and evaluated on the same Multiple-Choice pattern. Two small Sections on Rhetoric and Prosody and Figures of Speech have also been given.
