If you desire to pass NTA NET /SET exam first and the foremost you should know what to study and what to skip.
Whether its Shakespeare or Wordsworth ones should know which plays of Shakespeare and which poems of Wordsworth you should read in detail and which poem or play summary or gist is enough.
So unless you go through in detail each and every (very important works) of an author or poet and social, cultural and political history of each age (includes literary forms in relation to the author) it’s not easy to pass the exam.
Read all the works of canonised authors from the age of Chaucer to Amitav Ghosh. Memorise all the dates of the works and also their authors as chronological questions will come, and also try to remember the characters and storyline of important works
The most important book, which helps to score marks in Paper II is none other than A Glossary of Literary Terms by M.H. Abrams. This is not a reference book but a study book for NET aspirants. Unless and until you learn it by heart you are not going to clear NET.
