This introductory chapter explains the organization of the book, its main themes, and the aims of the kind of literary scholarship that it represents—the chief of which is treating a literary work as a designed human artefact, to establish its form and content, the circumstances in which it was created, why it was given the form it had rather than any other, the effects it was designed to produce on the recipients for whom it was composed, and the effects it actually produced on them and on other (usually subsequent) recipients.

Keywords:   themes, literary, scholarship, human artefact
