Inventing Ties and Bonds in English: Diasporic Literary Consciousness

Binod Mishra (Editor) P.J. Paul Dhanasekaran (Editor)

Diasporic literature is literature with a difference. It is not only a consciousness or an awareness of the other within the other nativist's burden of a backward motion love but also of the verisimilitude to accommodate in a multicultural world. The need to know and understand other worlds has been humans' congenital nature and this can be realized only by the extension of our selves. In fact, all of us are diasporic, thanks to the books of history and geography. Our existence in today's world can be elevated through cultural exchange. The chemistry of love alone can pave the way to a multicultural, multilingual world where we respond, correspond and commingle. The quintessence of all diasporic literature thus lies in inventing ties and bonds. The book in your hand is an outcome of the long felt needs of academicians and students alike. It comprises twenty-two articles ranging from Raja Rao, Nirad C. Chaudhuri, Amitav Ghosh, V.S. Naipaul, Bharati Mukherjee, Kamala Markandaya, Dom Moraes, Kiran Desai, Stephen Gill, Jayant Mahapatra, Chitra Banerjee, Divakaruni, G.S. Sharat Chandra etc. Since many of these authors are prescribed in various colleges and universities, an attempt has been made to make the book reader friendly. The book satisfies the expectations of everyone working in the field of diasporic literature.
