Item Description: Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. First Edition. In the Mahabharata, King Yayati is cursed to old age in the prime of life for a sexual misdemeanour of his and tries to circumvent the catastrophe by demanding that his son, Pooru, lend him his youth in exchange for the curse. This unusual myth about a parent's aggression against his offspring has inspired some of India's most eminent writers to explore it in fiction, poetry, and drama. Girish Karnad was only twenty-two when he attempted his interpretation in the play, Yayati. What makes his version of the tale so resonant, and startlingly original, is that he rejects the traditional glorification of the son's ''self-sacrifice' and, against a backdrop of lust, jealousy, and racial tensions, foregrounds the tragic choices with which the young prince and his bride are confronted. Angry, energetic, ambitious, and strongly influenced by the tragic vision of the Existentialists, the play immediately established Karnad's reputation as a dramatist in Kannada and launched him on his celebrated career in the Indian theatre. Yayati has been translated into different Indian languages and has continued to be performed all over the country during the half century since it was written. Bookseller Inventory # 019727

Item Description: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, 2012. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. This book is based on the myths in the plays of Girish Karnad. The four major plays Hayavadana, Yayati, Nagamandala and The Fire and the Rain have been analyzed from a gender perspective. It is a pioneering work since it brings to light the fact that contrary to the prevalent belief that women s emancipation movement started in the last two centuries, it establishes that the world of ancient India was both liberal and generous. The women represented in these plays belong to ancient India. They were aware of their identities as independent individuals and were able to take intelligent decisions regarding their destiny with vigor and determination. The book establishes Karnad as a revolutionary author who was able to artistically present the reality of female psyche. It also bridges the distance between ancient and the modern because the emancipated souls of the women presented, radically implant the truth that God created man and woman equal with the same needs, drives and motives. It is really interesting to note how the women in these plays display the multivalent existence in different spheres of human activities. The indepth research on the theories of myth and folklore of India is a substantial contribution to academic insight. The detailed and systematic study of gender history, gender related issues and exposition of current theories will be an important resource to all those engaged in this branch of research. The application of gender theories to the works of Karnad will also prove useful for scholars desirous of pursuing similar studies on different authors. Written in a refined style and lucid manner this book will ably fulfill the need for applied studies in literature. Such studies are challenging but are also most gratifying because they are fresh and hence, energizing. This original work has also undertaken the daunting task of incorporating the living legends of feminist criticism such as Kate Millet, Helen Cixous, Alice Walker, Elaine Showalter, Luce Irigaray, Judith Butler, along with the trail blazer Simone de Beauvoir.

Item Description: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2013. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. . (illustrator). . The term ?Indian drama? cannot be confined into a definition as it encompasses the entire gamut of Indian culture?the myths, the folklores, the history and the ethos of the country. Drama in India is as old as its customs, starting right from the Vedic era. Much like the English Morality and Miracle plays, Indian drama was also essentially religious in nature as it had started out with performances in the Indrasabha or the court of the gods. With the decline of Sanskrit language it slipped into oblivion. However, the folk tradition continued unhampered in its various regional forms for a long time and kept the dramatic tradition alive. After the British came to India, a new awakening came over and the modern theatre was established by the British for their entertainment. Indian drama in English was initially hampered by the fact that English being a foreign language and limited to the elite class, found very few takers whether in the form of writers, actors or an appreciative audience. In the pre-Independence era, playwrights like Rabindranath Tagore, Sri Aurobindo and Harindranath Chattopadhyaya contributed significantly to the growth of Indian English drama. The works of these three dramatists are notable for poetical excellence, thematic variety, symbolism and morality. In the meanwhile, drama in regional languages also started to emerge as an important genre and writers like Dharamvir Bharati, Badal Sircar, Mohan Rakesh, Vijay Tendulkar and Girish Karnad began to experiment and use remarkable innovations in themes, treatment and technique. Drama today has emerged as a powerful resurgent medium to project the problematics of the social, cultural, political, traditional and historical changes that the Indian society faces besides the issues related to gender, class, caste and communities. Present anthology contains twenty-seven scholarly papers looking at Indian English drama, including plays in translation from a variety of critical positions providing useful insights. The focus of papers included in this book is on the plays of Girish Karnad, Vijay Tendulkar, Mahesh Dattani, Badal Sircar, Satish Vyas, and the Stalwart Rabindranath Tagore, among others. The collection will certainly prove to be useful to students, research scholars, teachers and others with interest in English literature, especially Indian English drama.

Item Description: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2013. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. . (illustrator). . Some of the modern critics of myth have stressed that the myth is essentially related to creation. The corpus of myths and rituals with its roots in the oral traditions and folklores has always captivated the writers worldwide who turned to myths and mythology to juxtapose the past and the present in order to depict the predicament of mankind and to probe the mythicality of human existence. The fertile terrain of interdisciplinary scholarship has added to the richness and diversity of oral/traditional genres. Orality as a feature of communication embodies in it both traditional and modern characteristics. Timeless and unanchored, it freely travels from age to age, country to country and genre to genre. In India, we have a powerful oral tradition which still persists in various forms. Studies in Myth, Orality and Folkore in World Literature is an anthology of scholarly critical articles contributed by scholars hailing from different parts of India and United States of America, thereby, establishing the generic similarity of myth, orality and folklore in all literatures of the world across space, time and culture. The contributors?all widely acknowledged scholars?have presented an interesting mosaic of myth, folklore and orality in a lucid and comprehensive way. A good number of the papers examine Rabindranath Tagore?s mythopoeic vision and his use of orality and embedding of it in his narrative and dramatic forms. Some papers critically deal with a cross-section of Indian, British, American, Canadian and African writers who have used myth and folklore in their writings. There are some articles which deal with the regional myths, folklore and oral narratives of India too. This book, it is hoped, will certainly prove to be very fruitful to all the students and researchers who want to be acquainted with the various aspects of myth, folklore and oral discourse.

Item Description: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing, Germany, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 220 x 150 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Girish Karnad, an ambassador of Indian culture and theatrical heritage to the Western world, is one of those rarest creators who have devoted best of their creative personality in the writing of the plays and their productions. Karnad s plays are outstanding as they embody the tradition of myth, history, legend, and folklores. Karnad s rewriting and remaking of myths and folktales bear some strong intellectual, emotional, and archetypal angle. His journey from Yayati to Wedding Album holds a mirror to the very evolution of Indian theatre after Independence. His plays enable us to say that there is such a thing as truly Indian theatre which can be true to its traditions and at the same time highly responsive to the contemporary concerns of Indian drama. Since his plays contain certain images, symbols and metaphors from myths, histories, folktales and legends, they have been interpreted as archetypal patterns in the explication of human consciousness and the growth of human civilization.
