Description : During the twentieth century, at the height of the independence movement and after, Indian literary writing in English was entrusted with the task of consolidating the image of a unified, seemingly caste-free, modernising India for consumption both at home and abroad. This led to a critical insistence on the proximity of the national and the literary, which in turn, led to the canonisation of certain writers and themes and the dismissal of others. Examining English anthologies of 'Indian literature', as well as the establishment of the Sahitya Akademi (the national academy of letters) and the work of R. K. Narayan and Mulk Raj Anand among others, Rosemary George exposes the painstaking efforts that went into the elaboration of a 'national literature' in English for independent India even while deliberating the fundamental limitations of using a nation-centric critical framework for reading literary works.

Description : Indian writers of English such as G. V. Desani, Salman Rushdie, Amit Chaudhuri, Amitav Ghosh, Vikram Seth, Allan Sealy, Shashi Tharoor, Arundhati Roy, Vikram Chandra and Jhumpa Lahiri have taken the potentialities of the novel form to new heights. Against the background of the genre’s macro-history, this study attempts to explain the stunning vitality, colourful diversity, and the outstanding but sometimes controversial success of postcolonial Indian novels in the light of ongoing debates in postcolonial studies. It analyses the warp and woof of the novelistic text through a cross-sectional scrutiny of the issues of democracy, the poetics of space, the times of empire, nation and globalization, self-writing in the auto/meta/docu-fictional modes, the musical, pictorial, cinematic and culinary intertextualities that run through this hyperpalimpsestic practice and the politics of gender, caste and language that gives it an inimitable stamp. This concise and readable survey gives us intimations of a truly world literature as imagined by Francophone writers because the postcolonial Indian novel is a concrete illustration of how “language liberated from its exclusive pact with the nation can enter into a dialogue with a vast polyphonic ensemble.”

Description : "The present study employs a gynocritical strategy to examine the six novels by contemporary Indian women novelists, namely, Shashi Deshpande´s The ""Dark Holds No Terrors"" (1980), Shobha De´s ""Socialite Evenings"" (1989), Githa Hariharan´s ""The Thousand Faces of Night"" (1992), Mrinal Pande´s ""Daughter´s Daughter"" (1993), Manju Kapur´s ""Difficult Daughters"" (1998) and Arundhati Roy´s ""The God of Small Things"" (1997). The aim is to focus on women´s experiences as women in the contemporary Indian society which is in a transitional phase-holding on to the traditional views yet inclining towards the forces of modernity like globalisation, materialism, consumerism and feminism. Efforts are made to record the emerging female voices using the tenets of the new women-centred psychologists, which suit the Indian cultural context."

Description : "Range of readings by Indian and international critics over a period of six decades, or from the beginnings of a critical discourse in the 1930s until the present time. The four chapters of the book offer a critical investigation into the reception of the novel genre as such and of the works of its three `founding fathers`, viz., Mulk Raj Anand, R.K. Narayan and Raja Rao. The latter chapters are supplemented by a list of the respective author`s novels, the most comprehensive critical bibliography to date and a list of critics that includes their publications dates. Following the development of both the emergence of the modern Indian novel in English since the mid-1930s and its critical evaluation, Riemenschneider illustrates the, at times controversial reaction to a `new` literary genre, as well as the national and international shifts of the critical literary discourse from the earlier close-reading approach of New Criticism to the more recent employment of postmodern and postcolonial theorems. The Indian Novel in English thus offers the reader insight into the development of a particular regional critical scene, as well as into the general critical concern with what is now referred to as postcolonial literature. No serious student of the Indian novel in English should miss this comprehensive, informative and balanced critical study."

Description : The 1947 partition of Indian subcontinent was a political problem and a human problem as well. Historical narratives document the political side of its whereas fictional ones narrate human experience of the ordeal. While humanizing history, the fictional narratives try to recreate totality of the holocaust. Based on this line of argument the present book critically examines the Indian English Novels on Partition. By relating the political history of the 'great divide' to the novelistic representation, the present study places the partition novels in the genre of political fiction. Further more it offers critical insights into Partition Narratives by exploring the thematic concerns and techniques of the novels under study. The critical acumen combined with historical interpretation and aesthetic evaluation makes it a reference book not only for the students of literature but also for the interested in Indian history.

Description : This Comprehensive Study Of The 'Makers' Of Indian English Literature Ranges From The Sporadic But Landmark Voices Of The Nineteenth Century To The Spurting Creativity In The Post-Rushdie, Contemporary Scenario. The Contributors, Unswayed By The Increasing Threat Of Publisher - Media Offensive To Appropriate The Critical Function, Firmly Adhere To The Time-Tested Tradition Of Explorations. They Interrogate Inflated Reputations, Underscore Unnoticed Achievements, And Probe The Mush Contested Inadequacy Of Indian English Poetry And The Paucity Of Indian English Drama. The Literary Discourse Is Largely Focused On Tradition And Avant-Garde, Indigeneous Roots And Western Influences, Colonial And Post-Colonial Perspectives, And Self-Indentity And Heterogeneity (Even Hybridity) In Indian English Writing. The Volume Also Investigates The Problematic Of Using The English Language To Filter And Indian Experience, Especially In Terms Of Departures From Standard English Constructions, Semantic Neologisms, Nativization Of The Language, And Cross-Cultural Significations. It Scrutinizes The Three Alternative Of Transcreation, Etymological Use And Transliteration For Moulding The English Language Into An Indian Cast. Despite An Increasing Number Of 'Unmaker'S Of Indian English In Indian Society (As Argued In The Last Essay), The Book Paradoxically Posits How The Indian English Writing Has Come Alive As A Vibrant, Autonomous Constituent Of Contemporary International English.
