A classic is commonly defined as piece of writing which is well- known and of very high quality  and lasting value, setting standards for other pieces of writing. Needless to say , classics are not the monopoly of a singal language or race or community, or nation or region. The classics studied in this volume of essays -homer , plato , aristotle, lucretius, manikkavacakar, sankara, shakespeare, milton, basavanna, ananda ranga pillai, rabindranath tagore, james joyce, bharati , wallace stevens, irving layton, saul bellow ,leslie fiedler , northrop frye, sri aurobindo and A,k.Ramanujan obvioulsy represent too broad a literary spectrum to be brought to gether with reference to a particular central thesis or anyone theme. it is not claimed that a common thread  runs through these discussions of masterpieces writtan on diverse subjects in different languages. but they all belong to that realm of literature which , in matthew aronld,s words, is a criticism of life in so fas as ït helps us to live , not merely by occupying us or by delighting us but by clarifying us with delight "Another observation made by him while pinpointing the function of criticism is also relevant here.
