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.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
