About this product
- DescriptionWith Salman Rushdie, Arundhati Roy, Jhumpa Lahiri, V.S. Naipaul and Kiran Desai winning prestigious awards for their literary output, Indian English literature has gained a voice of its own. Yet, as most readers of criticism of it agree, there is a dearth of serious examination of its authors and their work. This collection of essays attempts a contrapuntal reading of Indian English literature with what Ranjan Ghosh calls the infusionist approach. Since a majority of readers are made to stay away from a branded author or work, this book rejects any categorization such as postcolonial or Commonwealth. It deals with a wide range of issues--which human beings suffer from all over the world--including those that may t have anything to do with the politicized side of the postcolonial or the Commonwealth.
