Sociology of Literature

By Subhash Sharma

Novels help to identify socio-cultural relations among different sections of society. In this book, author Subhash Sharma demonstrates his enchantment with discourses in both India's social sciences and literatures. The book brings out critical issues related to Hindi novels in general and on Dalit literature in particular. It also highlights contradictions and protests at length, both contextually and historically. The analysis is based on well-known novels by Premchand, Jagdish Chandra, Giriraj Kishor, and Pandey Bechan Sharma 'Ugra.' The book meticulously synthesizes the philosophical traditions with the ideological moorings and genesis of the Indian novels. The reconstruction of the history of Hindi literature through novels goes a long way in interlinking of literature and social sciences.
