    This is Volume I of ten in the selected works of I.A. Richards 1919 to 1938. This set gathers the major writings of I. A. Richards between 1919 and 1938, including a large proportion of his periodical journalism together with a selection from previously unpublished manuscript articles now held in the Richards Collection of Magdalene College, Cambridge. The aim of this edition has been to provide modernised and corrected standard texts of these classics of twentieth century literary theory, and also to make available for research less accessible books and articles.
