“The one way of tolerating existence is to lose oneself in literature as in a perpetual orgy.”---- Gustave Flaubert

“Fiction is like a spider’s web, attached ever so lightly perhaps, but still attached to life at all four corners.”----Virginia Woolf

“The struggle of literature is in fact a struggle to escape from the confines of language; it stretches out from the utmost limits of what can be said; what stirs literature is the call and attraction of what is not in the dictionary.”----Italo Calvino

The Department of English of Kabi Jagadram Roy Government General Degree College started functioning from the very inception of the college. It started its modest journey in the year 2015 with 25 students admitted to the Honours Course and 2 students (From other Honours subjects) taking English as General subject. Initially the department was affiliated to The University of Burdwan where the Honours and General courses (1+1+1 pattern) in English were taught. Presently, the Department offers Semester based Honours and Programme Courses in CBCS system under Bankura University.

The Department has a satisfying library considering its initial stage and it stands assured to be furnished with the wealth of a well-equipped library in the years to come. To harness effectively the creative ingenuity of the students and also to increase their academic acumen and awareness of contemporary literature, the Department inspires the students to organize exhibitions and publish wall- magazines regularly.
