This book contains eight chapters. Chapters one to four dwell on the meaning of literature and its genres; chapter five examines figures of speech; six explains literary appreciation; seven treats unseen poetry and prose; and eight comprises 100 multiple choice objective questions and answers, apart from well articulated review questions in chapters one to seven.
The writer hopes that this book will meet the literary aspirations of all secondary school students, undergraduates, teachers and all lovers of knowledge, and urges them to explore to their advantage the vast and rich content of the book.
