Contemporary Women's Writing in India Hardback
Edited by Varun Gulati, Maratt Mythili Anoop
The word doyennes signifies the various expressions of female, feminine, and feminist aspects of contemporary literature in India, through multiple theoretical frameworks.
Contemporary Women's Writing in India is an edited collection dealing with a range of these issues set in the society of Indian culture.
Indian women's literature is still a fertile ground for critical enquiry.
There are three sections in the collection: Section I deals with specific instances in history, historical constructions, and representations of gender.
Section II offers a varied spectrum of feminist critical discourse on contemporary Indian women's writing, intersecting with the frameworks of post-colonial theory, deconstruction, perspectives on race and ethnicity, and eco-feminism.
Section III touches upon the notion of the woman's body and psyche through the varied perspectives of psychoanalysis, feminism, and post-feminism.
By thoroughly exploring a range of issues, Contemporary Women's Writing promises to take the reader by the hand, and journey through the unfamiliar but refreshing landscape of women's literature in India.
