It begins naturally with a series of tributes to and reminiscences of Indra by several of her students colleagues and admirers and modulates into the scholarly world of literary and cultural criticism which Indra has been practising with such distinction for decades now. The tone of these essays ranges from the deeply felt and personal to the most irrepressibly postmodern. The subjects handled are as diverse as the sense of place and how poetry is inspired by it the question of reading and response and their relation to theory the playfulness of postmodernism post diasporic literary history the discipline of English and the English teacher in India globalization and cosmopolitanism transnationalism making and breaking traditions dramatic pedagogy translation the archive imperialism India and Australia India and Canada Bakhtinian discourse the region caste and so on. The authors constitute an international cast and are from India Britain France Australia the United States and Canada. This is truly a magnificent celebration of the scholar adventurer that C.T. Indra is. 244 pp. Seller Inventory # 69425
