A solid authority on the dynamics of the English language, High School English Grammar & Composition has continued to be a rich source that has made readers understand the subtleties of the language since the 1930s.
Summary Of The Book
One of the most famous and evergreen guides to English grammar, this book by Wren and Martin has catered to generations, beginning in 1935 when it was first published. This particular hardcover publication came out in 2005. J.C Nesfield’s The Manual of English Grammar & Composition was an influential source for the authors when they first wrote the book.
While High School English Grammar & Composition has served as the ultimate grammar reference at the school-level throughout India for almost 80 years now, it was originally written for the purpose of educating the school-going children of British officials in India in colonial times. Over time, the book gained immense popularity among Indian teachers and students too.
The book has been divided into two parts, Grammar and Composition. The second part was added later, and has been subdivided into four other parts, which aim to help the readers to understand and practise correct usage, forming sentences, writing composition, and analysing and transforming sentences.
The book has been updated a couple of times, owing to the ever-evolving nature of the English language, and the updated versions are available online too. The revisions include a larger number of examples and practice questions. The book is popular and widely acclaimed not only in the Indian subcontinent, but abroad as well.
About Percival Christopher Wren
Born in South London on the 1st of November, 1875, Percival Christopher Wren worked as a schoolteacher and a boxer before he achieved recognition as a writer. He started writing fiction in 1912.
Other books written by Wren include Odd - But Even So: Stories Stranger Than Fiction, Beau Geste, Stepsons of France, Snake and Sword, Valiant Dust, Dew and Mildew: Semi-Detached Stories From Darabad, India, Beau Ideal, Beau Sabreur, Action and Passion, and Lures and Failures: A Tale of Hindustan.
Most of his books, apart from Beau Geste, consisted of simplistic characters and dramatic storylines. He was influenced by H. R. Haggard and Frederick Marryat, amongst others.
Wren married Alice Shovelier and the couple had a daughter, Estelle. Estelle died of whooping cough at the age of nine. Alice passed away in 1914. He remarried Isabel in December, 1927. Wren died in 1941 and was survived by his son Percival Rupert Christopher Wren and his adopted son Richard Alan Graham-Smith.

Ordered This Book Along With The "Key To Wren & Martin's High School English Grammar & Composition" on 25th Sept...
Though Flipkart claimed that it would take 3-4 days for the delivery, Got the Book on The Very Next Day...
The Key To This Book Arrived on 27th Sept...
Printing And Binding Is Fine...
The Flipkart Book Marker is a Pleasant Surprise ,looks beautiful and quite useful too..
The Major Point Is...
This Book is a Revised Edition By An Indian Author ...
If you take a closer look on the books Front Wrapper , you Can See the Indian Author Name in Yellow Color... Revised By N.D.V.PRASADA RAO..
In the Examples And Exercises it contains Many Indian names..
I wonder only the names are changed by the Indian Author or the original books contents are modified in the name of Revision..
Wren And Martin itself are a great series of books and it doesn't need Revision or any makeover by any author...(Just My Opinion)
I have read the the Wren And Martin series during 19993-94,but don't remember the exact contents and the Edition now...
Can anyone confirm this?
Will look forward to get the original text if possible...
at the time of purchasing i am tensed about the edition of the book because website is showing 2005 but they people said to sir if book is of old edition you can return the book i refund you the money
but when i got the book its completely new edition in very good price and in very good condition if you want to purchase this book go ahead a very nice book
wren and martin was the first book on grammar that i purchased in my school days... after finishing my school i purchased murphy's books on grammar(available here in the price range of rs.99-301) and i find these books extremely helpful as compared to this particular book....the reason for the success of this book is the word of mouth publicity (mostly done by people who hardly know a thing or two of english)..the content of this book lacks quality....i strongly recommend raymond murphy's books for better understanding of english grammar.
Ordered it along with the "Key To Wren & Martin's High School English Grammar & Composition" and a timely delivery was done by flipkart. It is a very popular book in students community and is really very useful for all of us. I've purchased it specially for my Children to enhance their English Language skills grammatically and also to revise and test my own english language skills once again after passing my MA in English Literature way back in 1999. This book along with it's key is a great combination one can really have. Just go for it without any second thoughts.
