CALL FOR CHAPTER PROPOSALS: DOGMAS IN LITERATURE and LITERARY MISSIONARY: TEXT, READER AND CRITIQUE

updated:

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 28, 2021

This book project aims to examine the existence of dogma in literature and some cult texts, and how dogmas in literature are conveyed to various audiences as a mission by some literary readers, experts and academics. The questions leading up to the volume are varied and their answers require lengthy examination and interpretation. So, this project investigates; Is literature dogmatic? What about literary theories? Can they be dogmatic, too? The answers to these questions are open to clarification, but the responses can also initiate an extensive discussion and manifestation. However, above all, literature does have an aspect that drags the readers, habitually burying them in its pages, and blindly attaching them to itself.

A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort.    E B White

Literature always gives joy, comfort, and solace to everyone who is in search of it. The poems inspire and kindle our thoughts, the novels drive us to have patience and look for new paths, the drama reflects lives in miniature form, the essays make us ponder on the subtle observation of life, autobiographies motivate and lead us to the path of glory….there is no end to describe what literature is and how it shapes our lives. We at times advertently/ inadvertently drink, consume and digest literature. The famous English essayist Francis Bacon aptly puts, “Studies serve for delight, for ornament, and for ability.”
