Overview for Indian Women Writers in English
During the last few centuries women writers have considerably widened and deepened the areas of human experience with their sharp feminine perception of life successfully transmuted into verbal artifact. The world body of literature in English would have been much poorer today but for the contribution of women writers. The new series studies in women writers in English is a grateful acknowledgement of that contribution and public recognition of their voice. This book covers a wide spectrum of women writers across space and time. The women writers discussed in this book Kamala Das, Kamala Markandaya, Shashi Deshpande, Anita Desai, Arundhati Roy and Jhumpa lahari along with extensive criticism. Since most of these authors are prescribed in the English syllabus in the universities of India both the teachers and the students will find them extremely useful and the general readers who are interested in literature in English or women writers will also find them intellectually stimulating.
