Narrating India: The novel in search of the Nation
Narrating India: The novel in search of the Nation
Description
About the Book:

The papers collected in this volume were presented originally at a national seminar organized by the Akademi on The Novel in Search of a Nation. The various sessions of the seminar addressed issues such as the region and the nation, articulating the local, rewriting/rereading history, women and the nation, Limits of the nation and the nation and beyond. The papers included here were selected solely for their value for a larger audience consisting of both general readers and specialists in Indian literature.

The papers in the first section of the book deal with some general issues regarding narratives of the nation. They map the larger contexts for subsequent sections. The focus of the second section is an certain collectivities. Themes such as the Partition, representation of women, treatment of Dalit experience and region and the nation are discussed. The third section turns to individual texts for detailed analysis.

This volume will stimulate further debates and enquiries regarding the relationship between the Indian novel and the thematics of nationhood.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
