High School English Grammar & Composition 11th Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.266

High School English Grammar & Composition is a compilation that talks about the standard usage of grammar, how to structure sentences, and the rules to be followed in the English language, along with information on the different parts of speech.

Summary Of The Book

Wren and Martin’s High School English Grammar & Composition is a book that is used to exclusively teach people how to build sentences and use the appropriate grammar in the English language. The new and revised edition has been updated to include recent changes to the language and contains information about the globally accepted forms of sentences.

Based on a research study in English, several changes have been incorporated in the book, which contains full-colour illustrations for better guidance. There are two appendices, the first dealing with American English and the second, with a new set of tests on grammar.

The topics covered include an introduction to subject and predicate, sentences, phrases and clauses, parts of speech, the noun and its kinds, the adjective and its usage and position, articles, pronouns and its types, verbs, active and passive voices, mood, tenses: past, present and future, infinitives, gerunds, participles, irregular verbs, modals and auxiliaries, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, interjections, and parts of speech.

This edition of the book was published in 2009.

About The Authors

P.C. Wren was a famous British author of adventure fiction.

His most famous books are Beau Geste, Beau Sabreur, and Beau Ideal. Apart from this trilogy, he has also written many novels and short stories, like Snake And Sword, The Wages Of Virtue, and Valiant Dust. Books jointly written by Wren and Martin include Elementary English Grammar, A First Book of English Grammar and Composition, and A Final course of Grammar & Composition.

Wren was involved with the Educational Inspectorate for Sind during his time in British India, and was also the headmaster of Karachi High School. During the colonial era, Wren and H. Martin wrote the first edition of High School English Grammar & Composition primarily for children of British officers residing in India during the British Raj. Their books were very popular when they were first published, and continue to remain the most preferred ones for English grammar guidelines.

H. Martin was also a popular writer, who was conferred the title of Officer Of The Most Excellent Order Of The British Empire (OBE) for his contributions.

Excellent book, pathetic delivery experience

The book is of course an old classic, I had a version at home which was all torn & the binding had become loose and I was interested to get an illustrated version for my son. The size is also larger compared to the previous prints, however in the name of illustrations several pictures/cartoons have been just shoved in to the empty spaces on every page. If you see the "non-illustrated" version you will just see that the layout, number of pages is all same expect for the pictures & colours missing. The book thus looks cluttered with no space for notes. My rating of 3 start however is for the book, the delivery deserves one star perhaps (read on for the reasons).

Some reviews incorrectly criticize the update done on the original book by Prasada Rao, these buyers are probably not aware that the updates by Rao were not done recently but many many years ago. In fact the Indian edition of Wren&Martin was always the one edited by Rao (that made it relate more to us with usage of Indian names and correcting some cultural & religious contexts, example avoiding the use of Mohammedan and use Muslim instead). The only changes publishers possibly did after that were these multi-colored & illustrated versions.

The book initially delivered to me had some loose pages, Flipkart did lot of fuss in replacing the book (first saying it was out of stock, while it was very much in stock, then accepting that it was actually a logistical issue that they cannot replace a book sold by another seller. Frankly why should I care who is their internal seller? When I buy from Flipkart its their responsibility) but replaced it finally when I wrote a strong review.

Therefore, be careful about replacement policy of the sellers bearing in mind that Flipkart won't replace stuff if the item is no more sold by original seller.
