About this Item: Aadi Publications, 2011. Contents Foreword Acknowledgement Preface 1 Introduction 2 VS Naipaul and The Caribbean 3 VS Naipaul and England 4 VS Naipaul and India 5 VS Naipaul and Islam 6 Naipaul?s Vision of other nations and cultures 7 Conclusion BibliographyThe present book is a diaphanous survey an incisive scrutiny and an in-depth study of the books and works of Naipaul bring us face to face with his variegated spectrum of different cultures and societies different races and classes carrying a universal and common thread of humanity with all its attendant struggles and strife trials and tribulations its joys and sorrows that in turn makes his works a powerful and colourful canvas of divergent cultures and societies where different issues and concerns values and goals are both explored ad expressed in all their shades shapes and nuances Since our times are times of conflicting ideas and ideals conflicting realities and divergent visions so our world bears the mutations of our histories and individuals are largely left on their own without the support system of society and family The centre has given way in face of the power politics of human enterprise VS Naipaul continues to be totally committed to this vision of the world to record this for the general mankind in spite of unsparing criticism from readers and scholars He is a writer who can go back to himself and acknowledge a fault or change of vision and a progression in his understanding of his world as and when such a change takes place In the proceeding chapters an attempt has been made to trace this progression in relation to his engagement with different cultures and societies to provide multinational canvas of the world with particular reference to The Caribbean England Islam India and some other cultures and societies like that of Africa and Trinidad This book provides perceptive and penetrating insights into the multi-coloured spectrum of a number of nations including those of the Third World VS Naipaul?s comments on these nations are penetrating and at times incisive and revealing This book examines and explores the traumas of postcolonial change and the plight of the exile the marginalized the uprooted with remarkable sagaciousness and sensitivity Since Naipaul oscillates between the stance of an insider and that of an outsider with regard to the societies he portrays and combines in an unsettling manner infused with irony severity and compassion so that makes his vision multidimensional vast and complex The West Indians view him as an Englishman because of his British education English look upon him as an Indian for his ancestry and the colour of his skin and the Indians regard him a West Indian writer But he is all rolled into one and still none 180 pp. Seller Inventory # 97458
