TOWARDS A LITERARY HISTORY OF INDIA
TOWARDS A LITERARY HISTORY OF INDIA
Description
About the Book :

The customary view of the history of Indian Literature is that it is the sum-total of the histories of the literatures of the country. This monograph discards such a view and proposes instead a very different approach to the recording and evaluation of India's literary past. It argues that the literary record of a multi-lingual culture has to be recognized in terms quite other than those that apply to a uni-lingual culture and asserts that the new model which must be constructed for such recognition would find ample use for literary theories and principles that used to prevail in ancient and medieval India.

At the same time, the author recommends Western concepts of literary history and techniques of comparative literature as a discussable identity. He concludes by providing a working plan which he hopes will lead to the writing of a proper literary history of India.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
