Details

The present anthology aims to probe, discuss and scrutinize the ways in which Indian writers have dealt with different social, political and psychological issues in their writings. It also extensively covers the Indian sensibility as manifested in the works of many eminent writers. It is a humble attempt to fill the dearth of comprehensive critical studies from multiple perspectives. This volume does not claim to be highly comprehensive in analyzing Indian sensibility through different perspectives, taking into the consideration its immensely rich cultural and social heritage. But it is expected that it will be an indispensable source for students and teachers of Indian writing in English and will enable the readers to grasp the real scenario of the contemporary Indian literature in English.
