The third semester B.A. English students have been provided a feast comprising the best dishes of essays from across the ages for their core paper Harmony of Prose. The book is a compilation of some of the most seminal and greatest masters of English prose. The anthology is a modest attempt at introducing the third semester under-graduate students to the charm and vigour of the English Language. The first module includes Francis Bacon, Joseph Addison and Charles Lamb, representatives from the Elizabethan age, the Reformation and the Romantic age respectively. The second module includes Robert Lynd, Virginia Woolfe and Aldous Huxley, masters of English prose in the twentieth century. The third module has been earmarked for writers of Indian origin who have wielded the English language in such a masterly manner that has aroused the envy of even the native writers. The fourth module includes writers from third world countries or throws light on these cultures.

While there have been many critical debates over the correct and valid construction of prose, the reason for its adoption can be attributed to its loosely-defined structure, which most writers feel comfortable using when expressing or conveying their ideas and thoughts. It is the standard style of writing used for most spoken dialogues, fictional as well as topical and factual writing, and discourses. It is also the common language used in newspapers, magazines, literature, encyclopedias, broadcasting, philosophy, law, history, the sciences, and many other forms of communication.

It is earnestly hoped that this collection will stimulate and inspire the young minds to delve deeper into the treasure of English literature.

On completion of the course, the student shall be:

• Familiar with varied prose styles of expression.

• Aware of eloquent expressions, brevity and aptness of voicing ideas in stylish language.
