Preface to Literature, 1954 Edward Wagenknecht
A Preface to Literature, 1954 by Edward Wagenknecht is a knowledgeable and sensitive attempt to help the young college age reader to understand and enjoy the literature of his/her emerging world.
It defines and explores the subject for the English reader, distinguishes the particularities of fiction, poetry and drama and discovers that love of learning and enjoyment that good literature--that "garden of exhaustless delights"--provides.
