Indian English literature is very resonant and elegant literature among regional literatures in India and among other literatures around the globe. The rapid growth of this literature is amazingly wonderful. Some literary legends and all time great writers like R.N. Tagore. R.K. Narayan, M.R. Anand, Raja Rao, Anita Desai etc. are prettiest feathers in the cap of Indo-Anglian literature. This progress has been a saga of a colourful procession in the field of fiction, poetry and drama.
In this critical anthology several scholars have tried to explore and detect this odyssey of Indian English literature. There are a good number of articles in the present anthology contributed by writers from different walks of life-professors, lecturers, poets, critics, and research scholars etc.
Some of the writers analysed are Mulk Raj Anand, Amitav Ghosh, Salman Rushdie, Mahesh Dattani, Girish Karnad, Arun Joshi, Jayanta Mahapatra, Kamla Das, Shashi Deshpande, Namita Gokhale, Bharati Mukherjee, Taslima Nasrin, Kiran Desai, Nayantara Sahgal, Anita Desai and D.C. Chambial.
It is hoped that the book will be of great help to the students, researchers and teachers of English literature and will even appeal to those interested in Indian English literature.
