Precis Writing for CSS 2008


Hello worthy members

This thread has broached in order to practise precis writing for CSS 2008 aspirants. Under this thread we will make precis of the passage. Please read the following hints before commencement of practice .

http://www.cssforum.com.pk/css-compu...s-writing.html

Make a precis of the following passage :

It is often said that literature is an index, indeed the principal index, of the soul of an age, and that to understand the spirit of any historical period, we should look first of all to the books that were being read by the people of the time. It is, however much too easy to suppose that the books we today value and associate with a particular period were valued in an equal degree by the writer`s contemporaries. In point of face, literary repute of the kind which ultimately establishes a work as a classic is very often of slow growth. John keat`s poem remained almost unknown to his own generation. It was only among the second generation after his dealth that his genius became widely recognized. It is important to remember that a great part of the reading done in any age is of the better books of a rather older generation.

Literature is considered as one of the most important touchstone of the past. However, it is difficult to say that the literary book that we read and value today, was equally valued in the past. Literary reputation often grows with a very slow pace. John Keats regarded as one of the most remarkable poet of today was totally anonymous to his own generation.

The Belated Recognition of Literary Greatness

Books that are read by people in any historical period are not necessarilly the best produced during that period. The value of a book is generally recognized long after it is written, as happened in the case of Keat`s poems. Mostly people read the better books of an earlier people than their own.

@ S Khan M

We never prefer to belittle our worthy member`s efforts . Whether we try to do everything to accomodate them. So There is no mean mocking for your industrious endeavours.

Firstly , Try to acquire main idea from passage. Above passage is casting following ideas.

1. Literature is generally regarded aas a mirror of the spirit of the age to which its belongs.

2. Books which we regard as great were not necessaarily considered great in their own day.

3. People in any age mainly read the better books of a past epoch, and not of their own time.

While the reference to Keat`s poem may or may not be included in precis because it is used as a example.

You are requested to read above mentioned hints. It will definately help you

Chao,
