This book makes an attempt to focus on different genres—poetry, drama, fiction, autobiography, children's literature and Activist Writing—from Mulk Raj Anand to Arundhati Roy. Care has been taken to choose scholarly papers by eminent critics as well as young bright scholars to show the progress of research in Indian English Literature.
The Editor, Professor Bijay Kumar Das, an eminent scholar and critic, has written an "Introduction" and interviewed two eminent writers apart from his own articles on Indian English poetry. Written in a lucid style, the book with its range, depth and clarity will serve as a reference book of Indian English Literature.
