Book Description Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2008. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. Various strands exist in the tangled texture of our plural existence—language, translation, religion, politics, gender, caste, community, films, migration, and nostalgia for a lost home. Elusive Terrain weaves them together in thirteen essays addressing diverse issues pertaining to literature and culture in modern India. ‘Locality of Culture’, the first section, examines a few of these strands in the context of the present and looks at literary debates that cut across regional barriers in India. The essays in the second section, ‘Uses of the Past’, go back in time to inquire into aspects of religion, the construction of the nation, and forming of community identities that constitute our past. The concerns reflected in the volume are too elusive to be neatly labelled. Though written at different times, the essays are linked by the point of view of a bilingual Indian reader. Bypassing global categories like ‘postcolonial’ or ‘postmodern’ they look at the way ideas travel across language and region, and how cultural memory is selectively retrieved. Size: 14 Cms x 22 Cms.
