English Studies in India : Widening Horizons

C.D. Narasimhaiah (Author)
Synopsis This volume offers a critique of the problematics involved in the discipline of English Studies in India over the past fifty years. In a closely argued discourse the author constructs and validates his intellectual odyssey in English Studies in terms of an irreversible movement away from the exclusive domain of a literature written in the U.K. to a more inclusive, enriching and composite concept of literature written in English the world over. Jargon-free and suffused with mellowed critical sensibility, this wide-ranging study also carries scholarly revaluations of several major writers including Shakespeare and Milton, Emerson and Eliot, Achebe and Soyinka, Patrick White and A.D. Hope, Sri Aurobindo and Raja Rao. The volume, at once a pioneering and lasting contribution, makes indispensable reading.
