This dictionary contains concise explanations of many of the terms encountered in the study of grammar and literature.
The author has reduced a complex aggregate of information to a simple and clear compendium of essential facts, with the intention of helping the reader who may wish to learn or brush up his knowledge of them. The style is easy, clear, and interesting, and the contents eminently practical and informative, which makes this book a very useful tool for anyone who studies literature or languages.
Entries with titles such as Arabic literature, German literature, Japanese literature, are meant to guide the reader to those works of artistic creation which have had the widest influence or have expressed vital ideas of civilization most clearly and convincingly, works that have earned their authors a place of honour in world literature.
