Poems. 4. Christus Natus Est. 5. Vaishnava lyrics. 6. Aesop in Rhyme. 7. Blue and gray. 8. Lyrical poems. 9. Religious lyrics of Bengal. 10. Rampur anthology. III. Studies 11. Papers on Shelley Wordsworth and others. 12. Charles Russell Memorial Lecture Charles Russell Wordsworth and Literary Criticism. 13. Papers on Shakespeare 1. Hamlet. 14. Maxims of Ali. Index. John Alexander Chapman was not only a poet literary critic and translator but also the longest served (1911 1930) Librarian of the Imperial Library. Though his poems are numerous he could not get recognition as an eminent English poet on account of his penchant for Sakta and other esoteric Indian themes unintelligible to the ordinary readers. His critical studies of Shakespeare Wordsworth and other poets made him acceptable to the English readers. The work of Chapman at the Imperial Library laid the foundation of the National Library of India for he not only started collecting books on Indian languages but also paid social attention to conservation cataloguing and other works. He succeeded in shifting the Imperial Library from Metcalfe Hall to Esplanade East for saving the books from Howrah smoke and Calcutta coal gass. A representative selection of his poetry and literary criticism is presented in this John Alexander Chapman Selections from the Works of a Lover of India. 447 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 52665
