Grammars may be considered the absolute fringe of literature. Nevertheless, they go straight to the core of language, the medium in which literature is presented and reveal a great deal about what those who wrote them thought about their own language, about language in general, and about their literature. Moreover, if a grammar becomes influential it will inevitably affect not only the composition of subsequent literature but also the way in which earlier literature is perceived, in much the same manner that David Lodge mush have had in mind when he had one of the characters in his novel Small World write a thesis on the influence of T.S Eliot on Shakespeare.
