Product Specification & Summary

This volume of miscellaneous essays attempt at a critical survey of the very first phase of our literature of Bangladesh. The themes of the essays are mainly literary and cultural. One thing about this book: the first essay is distinct from the rest. It is not only wider in its scope and larger in size compared to the other and much shorter pieces. Careful readers will surely detect, here and there, slightly discordant views expressed on the same subject. However, that disagreement of fundamental nature will be found between views and assessments expressed in different essays.
Prof. Zillur Rahman Siddique’s elegant style of language will be enjoyable for advance literary reader.
