Book excerpt: "This novel of modern India centers around national and personal conflicts in its story of V. S. Krishnan, a Brahmin, who, returned after ten years of schooling in England, finds that his country's strife over partition and the English evacuation is reflected in his own struggle to find a meaning and a definition of his life. His career arranged, his marriage predetermined, he escapes disgrace in a civil demonstration and settles into his government service post. Although Kamala is the perfect Hindu wife, personifying non-violence in which resignation can be translated into resistance, when Cynthia Bainbridge turns up their friendship, begun in England, becomes a passionate affair but it is ended when Krishna realizes that his religion is no longer open to him. Joining Kamala in riot-torn Shantihpur, he is confronted by the vicious hatred of the Moulems and the threat of cholera and is the witness of Kamala's murder when she attempts to protect a Moslem girl. After the traditional rites of her burial, he returns to Delhi and Government Service knowing that Kamala's final profession of faith has effected a change in him even if it has gone for nothing in larger terms. The parallel struggles of individual and state for freedom, the symbols, fundamentals, rituals and practices of different Indian groups, are overlaid with heavy textured prose that is exhaustive in its exploration of contemporary Indian thinking."--Kirkus.

Book excerpt: The Indian Imagination focuses on literary developments in English both in the colonial and postcolonial periods of Indian history. Six divergent writers - Aurobindo Ghose (Sri Aurobindo), Mulk Raj Anand, Balachandra Rajan, Nissim Ezekiel, Anita Desai, and Arun Joshi - represent a consciousness that has emerged from the confrontation between tradition and modernity. The colonial fantasy of British India was finally dissolved in the first half of this century, only to be succeeded by another fantasy, that of the reinstituted sovereign nation-state. This study argues that the two phases of history - like the two phases of Indian writing in English - together represent the sociohistorical process of colonization and decolonization and the affirmation of identity.

Read and Download Robert Greenfield book Dreamer's Journey in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TDreamer's Journey. This book was released on 2010 with total page 465 pages. Book excerpt: In an effort remarkable for its intensity and duration, the Wisconsin-born poet and novelist Frederic Prokosch sought to cast his life into a hopeless riddle and ensure that no one saw his full face. This study is the first to separate the man from the distortions that surround him and provide a window into the wishes and fears behind his writings. Prokosch was a writer of striking and original gifts. The publication of The Asiatics in 1935 was greeted by the fanfare of trumpets. His rise was dazzling. The author of seventeen novels, which typically guide the reader through a sequence of dream-like events, and four collections of poems, many defined by a kind of surreal intensity, he garnered high praise from a galaxy of august admirers, including Thomas Mann, T. S. Eliot, Andre Gide, Thornton Wilder, Albert Camus, Somerset Maugham, Lawrence Durrell, and I. B. Singer. He was named a Commander dans l'Order des Arts et Lettres by the French government in 1984 and awarded the Volterra Prize two years later. His novels have been translated into fifteen languages. In addition to discussing Prokosch's literary accomplishments, Dreamer's Journey offers an analysis of the dynamic relationship between his creative process and his penchant for lies and disguises. His novels, which he looked upon as extensions of his life, and in which he divides and diffuses himself among his characters, are, like the masks he donned in society, part of an effort to escape the unsatisfactory realities of his life, many of them caused by hostility to his homosexuality. Successful illusion, Prokosch had come to believe as a young man, is not only the essence of art but also of life itself. The exposure in 1972 of Prokosch's forgery of the "Butterfly Books" put a whole new complexion on his juggling of appearances. He expressed consternation but never remorse. A decade later, he reached new heights in reinventing his persona. Advertised as a record of his encounters with some of the century's most illustrious personalities, Voices: A Memoir is almost entirely fictitious and part of a gigantic hoax. Dreamer's Journey is based on a broad array of untapped archives as well as interviews and exchanges with more than three hundred persons---family members, classmates, editors, publishers, fellow writers, acquaintances, and lovers. The comments of many of these individuals, who spoke from both sympathetic and hostile viewpoints, shed light on the recesses of Prokosch's hidden life and resolved many of its mysteries. A kind of permanent expatriate, and a unique figure in American literature, Frederic Prokosch remains largely unknown in his own country.

Book excerpt: This Book Presents A Reasonably Comprehensive Account Of The Development Of The Indian English Novel Since Independence. The Novel During The Colonial Period Has A Different Outlook And Was More Concerned With The Problems Of The Indian People Suffering Under The British Yoke. After Independence The Indian Writers Looked At The Indian Scene From The Postcolonial Point Of View. There Were New Hopes, No Doubt, But The Problems Social, Economic, Religious, Political And Familial That Were Submerged In The Flood Of The National Movement Emerged And Drew Attention Of The Creative Writers. The Partition, The Communal Riots After Partition, The Problem Of Casteism, The Subjugation Of Women, The Poverty Of The Illiterate Masses Became The Focal Points. Mulk Raj Anand, Raja Rao, R.K. Narayan, Nayantara Sahgal And Kamala Markandaya In The Beginning Wrote Novels Of Social Realism In The Fifties.But After The Sixties, New Trends Emerged. Writers Like Anita Desai, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, Bhabani Bhattacharya, G.V. Desani, Chaman Nahal, Manohar Malgonkar And B. Rajan Portrayed The Picture Of The Post-Independence Indian Society. The Stream Of The Early Fifties Now Turned Into A Broad River With New Currents And Cross Currents. The Old Traditional Method Of Novel Writing Gave Way To Modern Techniques.The Indian English Novel Took Further Strides In The Eighties And The Decades That Followed It. Salman Rushdie Can Be Said To Be The Leader Of The New Trend. Shashi Deshpande And Arundhati Roy Followed Suit.This Book Divided Into Six Chapters Surveys And Discusses The Major Trends In The Post- Independence Indian English Novel.

Narayan, Raja Rao And Mulk Raj Anand Are Bhabani Bhattacharya, Nayantara Sahgal, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, Anita Desai, Arundhati Roy And Kamala Markandaya.This Book Will Be Of Immense Help To The Students Of Indian English Fiction And The General Reader.
