About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: New. The present book contains a varied selection of essays ventured upon as exercises in critical evaluation of texts that are relevant in the existent literary context. These essays are certainly not a random pick for each of the works chosen for analysis, whatever be the genre of writing, represents the literature in English produced by the native writers of a particular country. The two major literatures in English are indisputably those of England and America but there are many other countries like Africa, Australia, India and Pakistan whose authors chose to write in English because they felt that English, despite being an alien language, would better verbalize their creative urge and lend itself to an exploration of the immense possibilities therein. Most of the authors taken up for study in this book are those who belong to the fraternity of Indian English writers, namely Mulk Raj Anand, Shashi Deshpande, Salman Rushdie, Vikram Seth, Mahesh Dattani and Manju Kapur. Catering to a revival of interest in the partition of India as a theme in fiction are two essays which deal with the issue. Other write-ups are on works (some in translation) by native writers of hitherto marginalized countries that have now chosen to aggressively assert themselves through their respective literatures. The book, comprehensive and rich in its contents, is highly informative and would prove an asset to those interested in the diverse manifestations of literature in English. It would be of particular appeal to those who wish to explore the works of Indian English writers of repute. Printed Pages: 256. Seller Inventory # 21402

About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2010. Hardcover. Condition: New. Literary prizes form a fascinating interface between literature and society. Established in 1968, the Booker Prize has rapidly become one of the most prestigious and glamorous literary prizes in the English speaking world. Unlike the Nobel Prize, the Booker focuses on a particular novel rather than on a particular author. It seeks to confer literary recognition on novels that are winners and attend to the novel as a form and medium for new voices, styles and cultures. The Man Booker Prize expresses a postcolonial response and the prominence of India in its brief history is unquestionable. Besides V.S. Naipaul, the Indian Trinidadian, the prize has been awarded to four Indians?Salman Rushdie in 1981, Arundhati Roy in 1997, Kiran Desai in 26 and most recently in 28 to Aravind Adiga. In addition, diasporic Indian authors regularly appear on the shortlist that comes out several months before the prize is actually awarded. Thus, Indian writers have successfully created a niche of their own in English, leaving an indelible mark on the global scene. Rich in scholarship, Indian Booker Prize Winners is a challenging collection of essays, which propels the field of Indian English writing forward and focuses on the emerging role of Indian English fiction in shaping the most significant annual international award in English letters. The book examines the key critical debates which provide a concise analysis of the Booker winning novels from India. A variety of subjects and viewpoints inform the close readings of these seminal novels, thereby making the book particularly useful for the teachers and students of Indian English literature.

About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: New. Concurrent with increasing scholarly attention towards children?s literature, Canons of Children?s Literature, (Vol. II) explores an emerging body of literature that has thus far garnered little serious critical attention. The book critically examines how children?s writers have positioned children as powerful participants in the project of enabling positive social transformation and argues that those children?s texts are crucially implicated in shaping the values of their readers. The authors explore the fashions in which children?s texts respond to social change and global politics, giving shape to children?s perceived anxieties and desires. Deliberately concise, the book offers succinct yet beautifully written discussions that reflect the tone and feel of children?s books. Featuring discussions of the latest works of children?s literature, the text showcases the growing importance of young adult literature and has paid careful attention to the diversity in children?s literature which will equip both the scholars and students of English literature with dynamic new responses on this ?brave new literature.?

Catering to a revival of interest in the partition of India as a theme in fiction are two essays which deal with the issue. Other write-ups are on works (some in translation) by native writers of hitherto marginalized countries that have now chosen to aggressively assert themselves through their respective literatures. The book, comprehensive and rich in its contents, is highly informative and would prove an asset to those interested in the diverse manifestations of literature in English. It would be of particular appeal to those who wish to explore the works of Indian English writers of repute. Printed Pages: 256. Seller Inventory # 21402

About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2010. Hardcover. Condition: New. Literary prizes form a fascinating interface between literature and society. Established in 1968, the Booker Prize has rapidly become one of the most prestigious and glamorous literary prizes in the English speaking world. Unlike the Nobel Prize, the Booker focuses on a particular novel rather than on a particular author. It seeks to confer literary recognition on novels that are winners and attend to the novel as a form and medium for new voices, styles and cultures. The Man Booker Prize expresses a postcolonial response and the prominence of India in its brief history is unquestionable. Besides V.S. Naipaul, the Indian Trinidadian, the prize has been awarded to four Indiansâ€"Salman Rushdie in 1981, Arundhati Roy in 1997, Kiran Desai in 26 and most recently in 28 to Aravind Adiga. In addition, diasporic Indian authors regularly appear on the shortlist that comes out several months before the prize is actually awarded. Thus, Indian writers have successfully created a niche of their own in English, leaving an indelible mark on the global scene. Rich in scholarship, Indian Booker Prize Winners is a challenging collection of essays, which propels the field of Indian English writing forward and focuses on the emerging role of Indian English fiction in shaping the most significant annual international award in English letters. The book examines the key critical debates which provide a concise analysis of the Booker winning novels from India. A variety of subjects and viewpoints inform the close readings of these seminal novels, thereby making the book particularly useful for the teachers and students of Indian English literature.

About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: New. Concurrent with increasing scholarly attention towards children’s literature, Canons of Children’s Literature, (Vol. II) explores an emerging body of literature that has thus far garnered little serious critical attention. The book critically examines how children’s writers have positioned children as powerful participants in the project of enabling positive social transformation and argues that those children’s texts are crucially implicated in shaping the values of their readers. The authors explore the fashions in which children’s texts respond to social change and global politics, giving shape to children’s perceived anxieties and desires. Deliberately concise, the book offers succinct yet beautifully written discussions that reflect the tone and feel of children’s books. Featuring discussions of the latest works of children’s literature, the text showcases the growing importance of young adult literature and has paid careful attention to the diversity in children’s literature which will equip both the scholars and students of English literature with dynamic new responses on this ‘brave new literature.’ Preface; Acknowledgementsl 1.
