The present anthology of critical essays on Twentieth Century English Literature seeks to put together the body of writing ? criticism, poetry, fiction, short-story, ? in England, America, Australia, Africa and India in the present age, to discover how, despite its seeming divergence and dissimilarities, it falls into a broad pattern with regard to the choice of themes and formal strategies. The essays included are theoretical, com parative and exigetical, expounding move ments like Modernism and Post-Modernism; critical perspectives like the Scientifico-Psychological Approach and its practical application, and critiques of T.S. Eliot, Thomas Hardy, E.M. Forster, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Evelyn Waugh, G.B. Shaw, Harold Pinter, Scott Fitzgerald, John Steinbeck, Wole Soyinka, Manohar Malgonkar, Nayantara Sahgal, C.J. Koch and Frank Moorhouse. The anthology reveals ?the family re semblance? in twentieth century English literature irrespective of geographic and cultural barriers, reinforcing the view that in the ?global village? that the world has become, literature in English all over the world in the modern context has come to assume the form of a community-discourse.
