Indian English Literature: Marginalized Voices

Avadhesh Kumar Singh (Editor) R.S. Pathak (Author)
Synopsis In the present post-modernist age, relations between the ‘centre’ and the ‘periphery’ are being redefined. The works by and on the marginalized elements of our society such as minorities, women and tribals therefore deserve to be studied afresh and in depth. The studies contained in the present volume show that Indian English literature can prove to be a reliable barometer of human response to social forces and their effects. They also prove a helpful evidence on cultural contacts and changes and thereby enhance our knowledge of the acculturation process obtaining in modern India. The last two papers are on Gandhi and Nirad C. Chaudhuri respectively, who were champions of the weaker sections and throughout their life remained, more or less, marginalized in their own ways. Their views can serve as reference-points and their warnings and criticisms may prove to be of great value in the present context.
