Discussing Indian Women Writers: Some Feminist Issues

Alessandro Monti (Editor) R. K. Dhawan (Editor)
Synopsis The central objective of the present book is to discuss the theoretical investigations carried out by Indian women writers in their works and to arrive at a deeper understanding of feminist contentions. Fiction by women constitutes a major segment of the contemporary Indian Writing in English. It provides insights, a wealth of understanding, a reservoir of meanings and a basis of discussion. The feminist literary critics strongly believe that women must create a literature of their own, in which feminine sensibility could consider and confront the peculiarly feminine issues and experiences. This book discusses major Indian women writers, including Anita Desai, Nayantara Sahgal, Shashi Deshpande, Rama Mehta, Arundhati Roy,Manju Kapur, Kamala Das, Mahasweta Devi, who have given a graphic picture of Indian woman in their works. The conflict between tradition and modernity finds a prominent place in the portrayal of women. The new woman depicted in these works refuses to conform to age-old traditions and truly represents the Indian culture that is at the cross-roads of transition,today.
