Studies in Women Writers in English (Volume 1)

Mohit K Ray (Editor) Rama Kundu (Editor)
Synopsis 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. Sixteen essays included in this first volume of the series cover a wide spectrum of women writers across space and time. The women writers discussed in this volume include two each from Britain, America, Canada, one from Africa, and six from India; they are Charlotte Bronte, Doris Lessing, Lorraine Hansberry, Sylvia Plath, Margaret Laurence, Alice Munro, Nadine Gordimer, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, Kamala Das, Kamala Markandaya, Shashi Deshpande, Anita Desai, and Arundhati Roy. 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 and/ or women writers will also find them intellectually stimulating.
