Essay as a form of Literature is very old but continues to feature in the constructions and refashioning of our academic life. From the days of the Renaissance which produced Bacon and Mountaigne, the finest essayists, essay is considered to offer reference and practical wisdom. Essays are written on various subjects and everything under the sun is for the scrutiny of an essayist who makes an attempt to put down certain brief notes or endeavour to make an argument. Encyclopaedia of Commonwealth Literature is perhaps the first comprehensive survey of literature of this multicultural grouping of peoples and societies. Besides essays on individual writers such as Nadine Gardimar, Wilson Harris, R.K. Narayan, Patrick White, Salman Rusdie Henry James, Edith Wharton, James Dickey, Toni Morrison, Chinua Achebe, Wok Soyinka, W.H. Auden, Graham Green T.S. Eliot, E.M. Auden, Graham Green, T.S. Eliot, E.M. Forster, Toru Dutt, Sarojini Naidu, Premchand, V.S. Naipaul, Mulk Rak Anand, Ved Mehta, Octavio Paz etc. there are essays on literary development in the countries comprising the Commonwealth. Encyclopaedia of Commonwealth Literature makes a significant contribution towards interpreting the Commonwealth, through its vast store house of literature.
