SHAKESPEARE IN INDIAN LANGUAGES
SHAKESPEARE IN INDIAN LANGUAGES
Description

About the Book :

Shakespeare in India Languages is a pioneering work which explores the various subtle ways in which the Indian psyche, primarily in its regional manifestations, has assimilated ad made Shakespeare an integral part of its growth towards modernity. By focusing critical attention on the different modes of appropriation, expropriation, adaptation, translation and transformation our indigenous languages have taken recourse to, the volume attempts to present a coherent image of Shakespeare which is markedly and indubitably Indian. It argues, in other words, that our real Shakespeare is unbroken tradition of adaptation of his plays which are, as all translations ought to be, essentially creative interpretations and assessments of Shakespeare mad on indigenous cultural and literary terms. And, again, in this refreshingly original study of Shakespeare's play, it is Anandavardhana, and not Aristotle, who provides the aesthetic basis.

About the Author

Research Fellow at the University of British Columbia, Canada, and Fellow at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla Dr. Shankar was until recently a Professor of English at the University of Mysore. Apart form numerous contributions to journals and periodicals, his publications include Cleanth Brooks: an assessment, Readings and Re-readings (essays in American and Commonwealth Literatures), Appropriating Shakespeare and Carvalho-a translation of the Central Sahitya Akademi award-winning Kannada novel.

A poet and critic in Kannada, Professor Shankar has to his credit Nimmallobba and Pavada (collections of poems), Karibhanta (a collection of plays) and Nirvahane and Vastu Vinyasa (collections of essays in Literary criticism). Among his much reprinted translations may be mentioned Albert Camus's The Outsider,Voltaire's Candide,Mulk Raj Anand's Untouchable and Vidyapati's Purusha Parikshe and Tolstoy's non-fictional prose. He has besides edited a volume of essays Vyakti-Abivyakti in honour of Chanduranga.

Dr. Shankar is currently Visiting Professor of English at the University of Mangalore.

Preface

It is said that when Alexander the great left Macedonia on his mission of conquest he put in his pocket a copy of the Illiad and that it travelled with him all the then-known world. Maybe this is somebody's purely fanciful notion of the integrated nature of the culture of Greece but it is hard to associate even such apocrypha with the English who came to India in the seventeenth and the eighteenth centuries. No Shakespeare came with Sir Thomas Roe or Robert Clive. In fact, to really arrive in India, Shakespeare had to wait till his countrymen were through with their business of war and commerce and could get the services of a man like Macaulay who decided that the Orientals needed to be brought up on a strict diet of English education!

This initial recuperative step of Macaulay in due course created the classroom-Shakespeare and the 'Indian edition' of his plays with 'Notes specially prepared for the Indian Student'. Almost simulta- neously with the classroom Shakespeare, emerged Shakespeare, the writer for the stage. In big cities like Calcutta, Bombay and Madras his plays were presented by the self-exiled English for the pleasure of other self-exiled English. Over the years, these have developed into Shakespeare Scholarship, Shakespeare Criticism and a tradition of Shakespeare play-presentation which is neither wholly Western nor Indian.

In March 1996, on behalf of the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla, and in association with Dhvanyaloka, Mysore Iorganised a three-day seminar on "Shakespeare in Indian Languages". The major objective of this seminar was to explore the various subtle ways in which the Indian psyche, specially in its regional manifestation, had assimilated and made Shakespeare a natural part of its growth towards modernity. By focusing critical attention on the different modes of appropriation, expropriation, adaptation, translation and transformation our regional languages had taken recourse to, it was thought a coherent image of an indubitably Indian Shakespeare would emerge. This specific, informing principle with which the seminar was conceived also ventured to suggest that the real Indian Shakespeare was in our regional languages, in our long and unbro- ken tradition of essentially creative adaptation of his plays which are - as all true translations ought to be - interpretations and assess- ments made on indigenous cultural and literary terms. The papers presented here are to be seen against this light.

While this volume is fairly adequately representative of the perva- sive presence of Shakespeare in the South Indian languages, it must be confessed, that it is less so with Shakespeare in the North Indian languages. A lacuna, I sadly admit.

Gratefully, and with pleasure, I recall the generous help I received from Professor Mrinal Miri while organising this National Seminar. It is a cliche but I shall use it as it says what to me is the simple truth; But for Prof. Miri neither the seminar nor the publication of this volume would have materialised. Prof. C.D. Narasimhaiah kindly allowed us to have the seminar at Dhvanyaloka, the literary-cultural citadel of his at Mysore, and lent, as only he can, to the literary event his inspiring ambience. It is with pleasure that I thank him. The publication division of the Institute have done a wonderful job and I owe it my thanks.

Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
