About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. The word ?diaspora?, derived from the Greek word diaspeiro, literally means scattering or dispersion of the people from their homeland. Diasporic writing has been increasingly receiving academic and disciplinary recognition. It has emerged as a distinct literary genre. A large number of people have migrated from India to various alien lands under ?forced exiles? or ?self-imposed exiles? Some of them have made a mark in the field of writing. These immigrant writers reflect, on the one hand, their attachment to the motherland and on the other, their feeling of alienation and rootlessness. The diasporic writings which are also known as ?expatriate writings? or ?immigrant writings? give voice to the traumatic experiences of the writers when they are on the rack owing to the clash of two cultures or the racial discrimination they undergo. Immigration proves a pleasant experience only to a few immigrants who succeed in assimilating themselves with new geographical, cultural, social and psychological environment. To most of the diasporic writers, immigration is not a delectable experience. They often find themselves sandwiched between two cultures. The feeling of nostalgia, a sense of loss and anxiety to reinvent home obsess them which find expression, consciously or unconsciously, in their writings. The present volume is a collection of twenty-two research papers on the literary works of various eminent diasporic writers. They all voice the anguish of the people, living far away from their native land and being discriminated on grounds of race, colour or creed. The writers included in the list are A.K. Ramanujan, Uma Parameswaran, Vikram Seth, Anita Desai, Bharati Mukherjee, Jhumpa Lahiri, Rohinton Mistry, Kiran Desai and Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. Besides, there are papers on the works of some emerging writers like Iqbal Ramoowalia, Yasmine Gooneratne and Ann Bhalla. There is a variety of research papers on the literary works of these diasporic writers along with the articles on the theoretical aspect of diaspora. The book will be highly useful to the teachers and students of English Literature in various Indian universities, as well as to the researchers particularly those working in the field of Indian diasporic literature.

About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2011. Hardcover. Condition: New. Within the social structure of India itself, there had been a typical man-woman relationship in terms of dependence and support. Woman was supposed to be the ?other?, caught in the cage of native cultural ethos. But gradually, spread of education and economic independence certainly brought a change in woman?s status in society; the Feminist movement also established her as an individual. Notwithstanding, she is still a victim of patriarchal rage, male domination, sexual harassment, colonial mindset of males and so on. She is not treated as a person but only as a possession. She is a victim not only of man?s inhuman attitude but also of a system?the Hindu Dharma?which maintains that wife is her husband?s property and has no individuality outside that system. In Indian English Writings, the woman sometimes maintains the image of a self-sacrificial woman, to whom her pati is her parameshwar but sometimes she emerges as a revolutionary, struggling for her rights and standing against the patriarchal set-up of the Indian society. The writers of new generation like Shashi Deshpande, Nayantara Sehgal, Anita Desai, Githa Hariharan, Manju Kapur and others have depicted females who are no longer silent sufferers but have learnt to give voice, either vocally or silently, to their ?unvoiced resentment? The present anthology consists of thirty-one critical papers on the literary works of the eminent fictionists and dramatists of India. The papers on Shashi Deshpande, Nayantara Sahgal, Anita Desai, Githa Hahiharan, Manju Kapur and others bring home the fact that the Indian women, despite all subjugation, know how to struggle for their existence. They are now capable enough to change their lives through self-analysis and self-understanding. The educated and emancipated women eventually succeed in finding out the ways of ?uncompromising survival? A bulk of papers on the established and emerging Indian dramatists like Vijay Tendulkar, Girish Karnad and Mahesh Dattani provide a comprehensive idea of the feminine sensibility of these icons of Indian theatre. The female protagonists of these renowned dramatists are no more caged birds. They have learnt how to break the shackles of tradition and fly like a bird in the open sky. No doubt, all these women characters, despite being images of tolerance and forbearance, are bold enough to carve a niche for themselves in this world of oppression. The articles on new authors like Nisha Da Cunha and Ambai describe inquisitiveness of ordinary women who want to connect themselves with the wider world to have purposeful existence. An article on Chetan Bhagat, a technocrat by profession, analyses new woman?s struggle for survival in the technocratic world. The book will be highly useful to the teachers, students and research scholars of various universities who are working in the field of Indian Writings in English. Contents : Preface; 1.

About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2009. Hardcover. Condition: New. The word ‘diaspora’, derived from the Greek word diaspeiro, literally means scattering or dispersion of the people from their homeland. Diasporic writing has been increasingly receiving academic and disciplinary recognition. It has emerged as a distinct literary genre. A large number of people have migrated from India to various alien lands under ‘forced exiles’ or ‘self-imposed exiles’. Some of them have made a mark in the field of writing. These immigrant writers reflect, on the one hand, their attachment to the motherland and on the other, their feeling of alienation and rootlessness. The diasporic writings which are also known as ‘expatriate writings’ or ‘immigrant writings’ give voice to the traumatic experiences of the writers when they are on the rack owing to the clash of two cultures or the racial discrimination they undergo. Immigration proves a pleasant experience only to a few immigrants who succeed in assimilating themselves with new geographical, cultural, social and psychological environment. To most of the diasporic writers, immigration is not a delectable experience. They often find themselves sandwiched between two cultures. The feeling of nostalgia, a sense of loss and anxiety to reinvent home obsess them which find expression, consciously or unconsciously, in their writings. The present volume is a collection of twenty-two research papers on the literary works of various eminent diasporic writers. They all voice the anguish of the people, living far away from their native land and being discriminated on grounds of race, colour or creed. The writers included in the list are A.K. Ramanujan, Uma Parameswaran, Vikram Seth, Anita Desai, Bharati Mukherjee, Jhumpa Lahiri, Rohinton Mistry, Kiran Desai and Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. Besides, there are papers on the works of some emerging writers like Iqbal Ramoowalia, Yasmine Gooneratne and Ann Bhalla. There is a variety of research papers on the literary works of these diasporic writers along with the articles on the theoretical aspect of diaspora. The book will be highly useful to the teachers and students of English Literature in various Indian universities, as well as to the researchers particularly those working in the field of Indian diasporic literature. Printed Pages: 216. Seller Inventory # 13015
