A study of literature for readers and critics by David Daiches( Book )

49 editions published between 1948 and 1984 in English and held by 1,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of literature is not an obscure book of literary theory; it contains abundant and pungent examples and critical analyses-of prose fiction, of modern writing, and of the nature of poetry. "Its main purpose," as Professor Daiches says, "is to help the reader of works of imaginative literature to see what he is reading, to understand just what it is that he gets from different kinds of reading, and to discriminate between those different kinds."--Jacket

41 editions published between 1941 and 1983 in English and held by 1,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mr. Daiches first traces the history of English Bible translation, then makes a lengthy excursus into the development of Hebrew scholarship in Europe, and finally studies the work of the translators against a background of their times, differentiating between the two forces which produced such scholarship: the "back to the Bible" movement of the reformers and the disinterested scholarship that was a feature of the Renaissance. Of particular importance are the author's textual investigations of the rendering of Isaiah and his discussions of Greek and Hebrew scholarship in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. - Jacket
