Description

About the Book:

This book is a pioneering work on an area which has been edging more into the international cultural spot light. Although African American playwrights as well as dalit playwrights differ in their stance, methodology and aesthetic theories, nearly all of them take it as axiomatic that in a poor, problem-ridden society like ours any literature, in order to be legitimate and significant, has to be responsive to society and its needs. In the prevailing Indian context the book has a great significance as it tells us how cultural clashes and their aftermath may lead us to harmoniously integrated society. The book dwells upon the indigenous aesthetic theories of contemporary African American Literature and Dalit Literature. It opens up new areas of research possibilities in the field. It will be an invaluable aid to researchers and social thinkers.
