My series of articles on Literary Theory & Criticism: English Literature Education

My dear friends, I hope you are all doing well in this challenging situation. The world is facing a problem that many of us, the 21st-century rising people, must not have experienced before. However, this is not the time to become pessimists and stop doing what we usually do. Therefore, I have come up with a series of articles on English Literature Education where I will be simplifying Literary Theory & Literary Criticism for the students of English literature, elementary as well as advanced level. Not only articles, but I will also be doing videos on YouTube to ensure that the content is delivered in a comprehensive way.


Literary theory by Alok Mishra


Series on literary theory will begin with a comprehensive idea and the best possible definition of the concept itself. Once the readers understand what literary theory is, they can easily understand the connotations of the term as well as the applications of it. I will be focusing on, then, describing the types of literary theories in brief before getting into the details of each of them. Literature students, make sure you follow English Literature Education website and keep a track of the latest articles section to get the articles. You can also comment about your needs, problems and specific examples if you need.

The basic inspiration for doing this article series has come from the fact that Indian study of English literature is limited, in many places when it comes to literary theory. Though the professors are more than capable and scholarly, the lack of simplified resources and also a perception in the students, even before they get into the details, that studying theory is far more difficult than studying a literary text make things difficult inside and outside the classrooms. With my attempt, I will try my best to simplify the idea so that the readers, who will obviously be English literature students mostly, can get a comprehensively structured resource to begin their studies in literary theory and criticism. I will do my best to produce the articles and the videos in a systematic, synchronised and regular order so that the learning experience and further be enhanced for all those who want to learn it. I will also be highlighting the best suitable books that will aid the beginners and also the books that will help the experienced learners of literary theory and criticism to explore more in terms of new ideas and spaces for queries.

Like my previous articles which have become very popular and also my videos on YouTube, I am sure that my readers will like this latest attempt as well. I am on a mission to make the study of English literature more and more Indian in nature and content. In future, I will also try to collaborate with teachers, professors and eager students to extend this attempt in many other directions. For now, make sure you visit the link below and start learning theory in a comprehensive and easy way. Let’s begin with the basic question:
