Indian literature in general and Indian English Literature in particular have been casting a magic spell on all lovers of creative work. Post-Independence literatures have established an identity of their own in all nations liberated from foreign yoke. New voices, fresh aspirations, invigorating socio-cultural concerns have extended to the creative process a rare grandeur and unique stature. Voice of the suppressed seems to be the most vocal in demanding redress of genuine grievances. Human relationships as always draw attention unconditionally.
This book carries fourteen research papers on various aspects of Indian English literature and on works about India, besides four interviews with eminent men of erudition delineating several concepts and contexts as regards Indian English Literature. ‘Afterword’ is intended to throw light on the prevailing scenario. It is fervently hoped that this book gets the patronage of the discerning readers.
