Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, , language: English, abstract: English Schools and Departments in India started functioning well before English was grudgingly recognized as a subject in England. But in India, it was the master's voice, the colonizers tongue, and not a neglected discipline at all. A discipline and subject thought to be of little importance in its own country assumed prime importance in its colonial underbelly. However, shortly following this, there have been tireless attempts in England to turn English into a subject of respect within the University and beyond. A group of critics, scholars and poets worked in close collaboration to consolidate English. This book is an exploration of the story of English in England and beyond.
