The Educated Imagination (18)

41KvCFiTKhL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU15_[1]This is one of Frye’s most informal books on The Educated Imagination.  It’s the easiest introduction to his theories of literature and literary education.

There are many benefits to the study of literature. However, one of the most important benefits is to see and think more clearly and feel with more sensitivity. This will help us to live a better life than we could without literature.

By studying and reading literature, we could also develop an educated imagination. An individual with such an imagination live a richer and happier life. Also, the more literature an individual reads, the more of a scholar she becomes. And what a great life that is!

Northrop Frye is University Professor and chancellor of Victoria University and former principal of Victoria College, University of Toronto. Professor Frye is a Fellow of the Royal society of Canada from which he received the Lorne Pierce Medal for distinguished contribution to Canadian literature.
