Book Description


From the Jacket:


The eminent Hindi novelist, Jainendra Kumar, hailed Jaishankar Prasad as "the first great freethinker of our literature." The philosophy of Prasad is a heroic attempt to harmonize the ethical and the aesthetic, the pragmatic and the mystic insights into life that have been earned and lost and retrieved again and again in the course of Indian history. His poetic imagination is always controlled and moulded by his first-hand observations and experiences of life. His fiction and drama, for all their romantic and mystical atmosphere, are built on the foundations of a profound psychological realism.

In this first ever monograph written in English on Jaishankar Prasad - poet, playwright, novelist and short story writer - Ramesh Chandra Shah places him in the historical perspective, gives an account of his life and leads the reader to a better appreciation of his entire oeuvre.
