A PREMCHAND READER.
ZIDE, N.H.; AND OTHERS
SHORT STORIES IN HINDI BY THE WRITER PREMCHAND HAVE BEEN COLLECTED INTO A VOLUME OF READINGS SUITABLE FOR 2D-YEAR STUDENT USE. THESE STORIES HAVE BEEN ARRANGED ROUGHLY IN THE ORDER OF THE DIFFICULTY OF THE UNFAMILIAR VOCABULARY CONTAINED IN THE STORIES. THE LAST STORY WAS INCLUDED IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT IT CONTAINS A GREAT DEAL OF UNFAMILIAR AND SPECIALIZED URDU VOCABULARY. THE GLOSSARY INCLUDES ALL VOCABULARY CONSIDERED NONELEMENTARY. THESE NINE STORIES ARE IN NO SENSE REPRESENTATIVE OF PREMCHAND'S OUTPUT. THEY WERE SELECTED ON THE BASIS OF SEVERAL CONFLICTING CRITERIA--(1) THEIR LITERARY QUALITY AS JUDGED BY THE EDITORS AND BY SOME INDIAN CRITICS, (2) THEIR DEPICTION OF A VARIETY OF ASPECTS OF INDIAN LIFE, (3) TO A SMALLER DEGREE, THEIR VARIETY OF STYLE AND ATTITUDES ON THE PART OF THE NARRATOR, AND (4) THE ABSENCE OF ANY GREAT DIFFICULTY IN STYLE OR CONTENT FOR THE 2D-YEAR STUDENT.
