About this Item: D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2014. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. Two cultures of the world — Greek and Indian — have nourished literature. While the contemporary Western thinking is rooted in Greek thought, especially of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, and percolated down to the modern European languages with the advent of Christian thought, the multilingual Indian literary tradition has its base from the classical Tamil, Pali, Prakrt and Sanskrit. Though cultural specificity marks these two traditions off from each other, the universal human condition that finds expression in all literatures binds them together. This book delves deep into the growth of poetics, theory of literature, literary artefacts, aesthetics of literature as an art form, and dramaturgy and philosophy of literature. Cultures have given forms as their typical expressions — for India great epics, for Greece tragedies, and for England lyrics. Similarly, different ages of a culture find expression in different forms — Elizabethan age of England in lyrics, sixteenth-seventeenth centuries in drama, eighteenth century in prose, and nineteenth century in novel. India’s genius is in epics and its expression unfolds in shravya-preksha compositions, being singable poetry as its preferred form. This book must serve pretty useful for students and teachers of literature. Also, an invaluable collection for researchers in literature.Printed Pages: 232. Size: 15 x 23 Cm.

About this Item: D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd. New Delhi, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. 2nd edition. Leonard Bloomfield described Panini`s Ashtadhyayi (7th century bc) as `one of the greatest monuments of human intelligence.` It is a complete, explicit and comprehensive grammar of both spoken and textual (compositional) Sanskrit. Most of the reputed and renowned Indian and foreign universities running courses on Indian knowledge systems, study it for its principles of analysis, organization and description. What is of great interest is the theoretical framework that informs this grammar, a framework that has remarkable power to describe human languages, particularly the Indian languages. Panini is the watershed in the linguistic history of India. Before Panini, there was extensive work in phonetics, in morphology and lexicon (in the patha tradition) and in nirvacana (etymology). There is evidence also of the existence of several schools of grammar. In what is characteristic of the Indian intellectual traditions, Panini distilled the available grammatical knowledge and put it in 32000 syllables -- as if, it has been said, an ocean has been accommodated in a cow`s hoof-mark. After Panini, a whole tradition developed and produced rich works by Patanjali, Candrakirti, Jainendra, Bhartrihari, Bhojraja, Hemacandracarya, Bhattoji Dikshita, Nagesha Bhatta and many others. It also inspired work in literature and philosophy and has left its mark on the entire intellectual tradition. In the modern period, there is a spread of Ashtadhyayi studies round the globe and it has proved to be of great interest for the study of knowledge representation in the departments of system sciences. A comprehensive study of the different dimensions of this wonderful grammar enlarges and alters the conceptual horizons of young minds and of all those who care to be associated with the Indian grammatical systems. This book is a record of that adventure. Book Contents Transliteration Chart Preface 1. Introduction: Study of Language in India 2. Linguistic Thought in India 3.

About this Item: Academic Foundation, 1995. Hardcover. Condition: New. Looking upon literary theory as a bridge between literature and philosophy, this selection brings into Focus literary theory`s major issues and concerns -- reality and its literary representation, the creative, the Language of representation, forms of enactment, modes of literary meaning, the epistemic value of literature and the role of `author` and of `reader`. In the Texts of Classical theorists -- Plato, Aristotle, Horace, Longinus -- all these major issues are found conceptualised. Subsequent literary Criticism in the West is either explicating these concepts or the Greek masters whose work is the backdrop for classical theories. In the Same tradition, the English literary criticism, evaluates these classical formulations and practices in relation to the developing and increasingly assertive English (`vernacular`) literature , remaining rooted in the classical thought , and deriving there from its Analytical apparatus. But at the same time it records the assertion of national identity, the liberation of the English mind from the tyranny of classical rules and practices and of the European, particularly French, models. The selected texts have been commented upon to foreground the recurrent issues and assumptions, and the short Essays on major theorists and thinkers Review their principles and their place in the History of ideas. These selections and their discussions have originated in the class room and therefore have a pedagogic Foundation and value. Printed Pages: 318. Seller Inventory # 44265

About this Item: Academic Foundation, 1991. Hardcover. Condition: New. This Books examines ` the English question` with a new freedom of mind. The interrogative mood has taken over, and there is a critical awareness that the old assumptions need to be scrutinised and validated. The various papers in this edited volume have been contributed by well known Indian scholars and Teachers of English and linguistics. The editors, in there Introduction, have provided the contemporary context of English and a frame of reference for the contributors but make no attempt to impose or infer a singleness of voice. The voices in the collection remain Indian, diverse and authentic. Sixteen scholars have contributed to this volume which, among others, discusses the following main issues : English in Education English in Business and Administration English and Indian Culture English and Imperial Expansion English and Indian Languages Indianisms in Indian English Indian English today Impact of English on Indian Literature Indian Poetry in English Prose in Indian English Teaching Spoken English in India Varieties of Indian English Sound Patterns of Indian English Failure of English as a Lingua Franca in India. The Contributors include scholars from : The Central Institute of English and Foreign Languages, Hyderabad; the Central Institute of Indian Languages, Mysore; the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur; the Berlin University (Germany ); the University of Illinois (U.S.A); Jawaharlal Nehru University (J.N.U., New Delhi); the University of Delhi; M.D. University, (Haryana) The Englishers around the World are now a major Research object - a whole range of linguistic, Pedagogical and Policy issues are being formulated and investigated. There are two overriding concerns --- what is the impact of this essentially ` Alien ` Language on the native languages, literatures, Society and culture. These constitute ` the English question ` The impact of English on Indian literatures and culture has been analysed not only to take note of and admire the new themes and forms, and the so called ` Modernity `, but also to examine the ` newness ` and ` modernity ` themselves for what they are and for what they are worth. Thus, a new critical point of view emerges on the history, sociology, function, impact and future of English in India. Contents 1. Introduction : English in India - Issues and Problems/Kapil Kapoo 2.

About this Item: Academic Foundation, 1994. Hardcover. Condition: New. This collection of eighteen essays articulates the structures of thought available in the Indian intellectual traditions in language, grammar and poetics. A whole range of issues relating to theory, pedagogy and analysis are taken up : the oral tradition and its texts, the structure of oral narratives, the limits of lexical meaning, the question of appropriate poetics, grammar as the primary model of knowledge and the epistemological status of metaphors are some of the issues that have considerable theoretical significance and contemporary relevance as well. The conceptual frames emerging from these structures of signification are shown to be interwoven with, and pertinent for, the actual English language teaching practices and the analyses of English literary Texts. This collection demonstrate the value of interactive scholarship particularly in the fields of language, literary theory and epistemology in which India has Known traditions of texts and thinkers. It thus, also constitutes an argument for re-locating modern Indian scholarship in its original roots ? the classical Sanskrit tradition. At the same time, the essays in this collections establish the validity of applying Indian explanatory constructs for contemporary objects by demonstrating the ability of their analytical systems to explicate both the modern structures of signification and the Indian response to them.
