Indian English Literature: Retrospect and Prospect

K.A. Agrawal (Editor) O.P. Budholia (Editor)
Synopsis Indian English Literature after independence has passed through some definitive trends for extolling the cultural heritage of India as a nation, the innovations in linguistic competence and the structural properties, the piercingness through the motifs of socio-political consciousness and above all the revelation of certain specifying conditions of human mind and the interior regions of human psyche. To work with the cultural past of a nation is to uphold the harmony among the conflicting claims, to unfold an equilibrial approach to the free play of memories and the principles of creative imagination, the world of myths, metaphors and symbols and their application to the contemporary aspects of the literariness of literature. Almost the totalities of Indian English literature before and after independence of India as a nation bring into being a wider vision of the indigenization of creative instinct and at the same time its associativeness with humanitarian notes and universal validity of literature. At its outset, this book includes four essays of literary criticism on the development of Indian English poetry during the last fifty years, the post colonial/post structural method in textuality, the universal application to Indian aesthetics and the growth of Indian short fiction in English. Apart from these essays on criticism, the book takes in the fictional works of Raja Rao, Manohar Malgonkar, Khuswant Singh, Anita Desai, Kamala Markandaya, the poetic works of Toru Dutt, Nissim Ezekiel and the dramatic works of Sri Aurobindo, Asif Currimbhoy and Girish Karnad.
