9788175511156: Parsee Novel

Steeped in the rich Zoroastrian myths and legends, young promising Parsee novelists like Firdaus Kanga, Rohinton Mistry, Farrukh Dhondy, Bapsi Sidhwa, Ardashir Vakil and Boman Desai use English as an instrument of self-assertion. This work seeks to examine the major thematic preoccupations of both the expatriate and stay-at-home Parsee novelists in relation to the Zoroastrian world-view.

Gandhi in the unconscious: Dina Mehta's And Some Take a Lover. Conclusion. Bibliography. "Parsees have made a signal contribution to the canon of postcolonial fiction. They fall into two categories: expatriates and stay-at-home writers. Steeped in the rich Zoroastrian myths and legends, young promising Parsee novelists like Firdaus Kanga, Rohinto Mistry, Farrukh Dhondy, Bapsi Sidhwa, Ardashir Vakil and Boman Desai use English as an instrument of self-assertion. At the same time, they are not blind to the challenges confronting the miniscule community such as mixed marriage and demographic decline. This work seeks to examine the major thematic preoccupations of both the expatriate and stay-at-home Parsee novelists in relation to the Zoroastrian world-view."
