Modern Indian English Fiction

 
T.S. Anand (Editor) T.S. Anand (Compiler)
Synopsis Modern Indian English fiction essays a probing leap into various facts and factors that attended the shift in focus, in Indian English fiction since independence, from the socio-politico-economic themes to the exploration of the limitless depths of agonised inner selves and various contours of human psyche. The fifteen essays in the volume focus on the primary concerns that inform the works of Indian writers—R.K. Narayan, G.V. Desani, Arun Joshi, Anita Desai, Shashi Deshpande, Gita Mehta, Arundhati Roy, Raj Kamal Jha, Shobha De, Kamala Das, Amrita Pritam and Anjana Appachana. In the choice of themes and authors there is a wide range from aesthetics, history, family relationships, diasporic experience, politics, feminism, problematics of definition of Indian English fiction, existential dilemmas and spiritual quests, to deconstruction of predefined Western notions about Indian myths. Hopefully, the present volume which is marked by insightful analysis and fresh perspectives on Indian fiction in English, would be of immense use to the researchers and scholars of Indian English fiction.
