A Walk to Tintern Abbey and Beyond For the Love of Literature

Author Name: Jaya Chandrasekhar | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details
Amazon Sales Rank: Ranked #69 in Literary Theory

Originally published as a series of podcasts, Jaya Chandrasekhar’s collection of write-ups is on selected timeless poems and plays.

In an engaging conversational tone, she brings alive the vibrant echoes from the past. Curiosity is kindled by the array of questions raised and the reader accompanies the author in her quest for understanding. Together they explore and interpret poetry, drama and life. They traverse the corridors of literature, borders collapse, to reveal rich insights, deep lasting humanness and aesthetic fulfilment.

A resourceful companion to a literary student, the book carefully handpicks from a plethora of literary criticism, the most noteworthy, illuminating studies, enriched with the writer’s own vantage point.

Her open-ended writing respects and inspires the reader’s own perspective. She puts into words what a piece of literary work is, the deep impressions it creates and the entire period with the social realities it evokes.

The reader discerns and determines what aspects merit critical scrutiny and what lies unexplored in this luminous record of inner and outer life, craftsmanship and the mystique we call genius. 

Here is a meditative walk from the serene Tintern Abbey to the magical Byzantium and the ageless, enduring ruins of Burnt Norton.

Jaya Chandrasekhar

In love with the English language and literature, right from my college days, the allure deepened and the passion remained all through the years. With a post-graduate degree in English language and literature from Madras University and a Bachelor of Education degree from Mahatma Gandhi University, it has been a fascinating bond, which led to a teaching career across a wide spectrum of varied, challenging experiences, with numerous multi-lingual students.

Interesting travel within the country and abroad, as the spouse of a highly placed civil servant, brought in a rich, vibrant social interface with distinguished people. This opened up a world of understanding and appreciation of different cultures, and literature came alive in a historical context, wherever I went. As a freelance trainer at InLingua, the International School of Languages, New Delhi, and Wall Street Institute of English in Geneva, new frontiers and fresh horizons were there to be explored.

Now settled in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, I rediscovered the beauty of English literature, while training civil service aspirants at the Fortune Civil Service Academy. We navigated the realm of literature with a sense of wonder and profound joy.

This book is an adoring tribute to the great masters of English literature who gave us countless hours of inspiration, contemplation and happiness.
