Vision: A Textbook for College Students is based on the syllabus of the B.A. (Final) programme in Compulsory English of the Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University for the academic sessions 2010-11 and onwards. This book is a compilation of literary prose pieces, poems and one-act plays. The book also contains a section on developing writing skills. Vision contains a total of four sections. Three of these sections which are based on literary pieces expose students to a variety of text types. They are prose, poetry and one-act plays. The lessons in these sections are designed to sharpen and develop reading skills. The skilfully crafted reading comprehension questions, glossary of difficult words, notes on the author and brief write-up about the text are highlights of this section. Special care is taken to create sensitivity for appreciating poetry by highlighting special literary devices used in the poems. The ability to write clearly and effectively is a skill which if mastered will stand students in good stead. With this objective in mind the section on Writing Skills leads the students through the process of developing a writing task. Students are also given sufficient examples and models to understand the specific mechanics of writing different types of assignments. The syllabus is provided at the end of the book. To help the students prepare for the exams the question paper pattern is given at the end of the book. Students can prioritise their exam preparations by studying this design. About the Author N.V.
