Papers on Indian Writing in English (Vol. 1)

A.N. Dwivedi (Author)
Synopsis This volume consisting of some twenty papers deals exclusively with Indian poetry in English right from the date of its origin in the 1830s to the present day. It focuses our attention on such illustrious poets of India as Aru Dutt (Who has written very little but lasting verses), Toru Dutt, Rabindranath Tagore, Sri Aurobindo, Sarojini Naidu—all representing the older generation—Nissim Ezekiel, A.K. Ramanujan, R. Parthasarathy, Kamala Das, Monika Varma, Margaret Chatterjee, Syed Amanuddin, K.N. Daruwalla, Shiv K. Kumar, Arun Kolatkar and Suniti Namjoshi (a lesser known figure)—all symbolising the hopes and aspirations of Modern India. There is also a chapter on "Irony as Technique in some ‘New’ Indo-English poets." An Index has been given at the end of the volume to guide readers through it. Most of these papers have already appeared in different magazines, periodicals and books, but putting them together here in book form enhances their accessibility and demonstrates a sense of commitment on the part of the author to the cause of fast-expanding Indian Writing in English.
