LIFE AND WORKS OF SAADAT HASAN MANTO
LIFE AND WORKS OF SAADAT HASAN MANTO
Description
From the Jacket

This volume brings together a collection of essays of literary critics, historians and sociologists presented at a seminar on the life and works of Saadaat Hasan Manto held at the Institute of advanced study in 1996. It offers the first major critical appraisal of the complex moral impulses and formal elements which characterize the works of one of the greatest writers of the Indian subcontinent. Many of the essays included here also pay thoughtful attention to Manto's attempts to make sense of the partition of India and its accompanying horror.
