Writing India Anew : Indian English Fiction 2000-2010 Paperback / softback
Edited by Rituparna Roy, Krishna Sen
Part of the ICAS Publications Series series
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.
