Writing India Anew : Indian English Fiction 2000-2010, Paperback / softback Book

Writing India Anew : Indian English Fiction 2000-2010 Paperback / softback

Edited by Rituparna Roy, Krishna Sen

Part of the ICAS Publications Series series

Description

This groundbreaking study assesses the genre of Indian-English fiction in the first decade of the twenty-first century.

Some of the most prominent scholars in the field, including Rimi B.

Chatterjee, Bill Ashcroft and Shirley Chew, explore a range of themes that extend from the re-mapping of mythology and history to reassessing the globalised India of today.

Together, they contend that the current body of work of Indian-English literature is so varied and vibrant that it can no longer be dismissed as derivative or dispossessed.

Instead, they regard this new corpus of writing to be a major aspect of contemporary Anglophone literature.

Ultimately, the contributors contend that the current body of work in Indian-English fiction is so varied and vibrant that it can no longer be dismissed as derivative or dispossessed, or even as mere postcolonial 'writing back' or compensatory national allegory.
