Indian Literary Criticism in English

Critics, Texts, Issues

Edited by: P.K. Rajan

This anthology of critical essays attempts to make a comprehensive evaluation of some of the major Indian critics/theorists in English and also focus on some of the issues vital to contemporary Indian literary criticism. Even though much is available as scattered pieces in the field, there has seldom been an effort to bring together the major writers for close scrutiny in a single volume. Similarly, the efforts to highlight the issues of contemporary criticism with special reference to Indian English have also been scanty.The present volume shows Indian critical writing in English as an exciting area which deserves to be a subject of serious study and painstaking research by the English Departments in our universities.
