The Shadow Lines, which won the Sahitya Akademi Award, is a book that captures the times and events of the permanent rupture that was created by the Partition not only in terms of the division of the sub-continent, but also in regard to the permanent dislocation of the individual psyche that it brought about. It is about the shadowy boundaries of nation states which have created real boundaries among individuals.
The Shadow Lines has come to be regarded as one of the canonical texts dealing with the experience of the Partition of India. This anthology of critical essays deals with the various aspects of the novel, like memory, Partition, narrative technique, character sketches and other thematic considerations from an inter-disciplinary perspective. The anthology contains contributions from Research scholars and Professors from all over the world. The Papers engage with the complexities of modern literary theory and the way they throw light on the reading of a text outside the periphery of conventional Anglo-American texts.
