Book Synopsis Counterrealism and Indo-Anglian Fiction by : Chelva Kanaganayakam
Download or read book Counterrealism and Indo-Anglian Fiction written by Chelva Kanaganayakam and published by Wilfrid Laurier Univ. Press. This book was released on 2006-01-01 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What do R.K. Narayan, G.V. Desani, Anita Desai, Zulfikar Ghose, Suniti Namjoshi, and Salman Rushdie have in common? They represent Indian writing in English over five decades. Vilified by many cultural nationalists for not writing in native languages, they nonetheless present a critique of the historical and cultural conditions that promoted and sustained writing in English. They also have in common a counterrealist aesthetic that asks its own social, political, and textual questions. This book is about the need to look at the tradition of Indian writing in English from the perspective of counterrealism. The departure from the conventions of mimetic writing not only challenges the limits of realism but also enables Indo-Anglian authors to access formative areas of colonial experience. Kanaganayakam analyzes the fiction of writers who work in this vibrant Indo-Anglian tradition and demonstrates patterns of continuity and change during the last five decades. Each chapter draws attention to what is distinctive about the artifice in each author while pointing to the features that connect them. The book concludes with a study of contemporary writing and its commitment to non-mimetic forms.

Book Synopsis Cultural Imperialism and the Indo-English Novel by : Fawzia Afzal-Khan
Download or read book Cultural Imperialism and the Indo-English Novel written by Fawzia Afzal-Khan and published by Penn State Press. This book was released on 1993 with total page 210 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Cultural Imperialism and the Indo-English Novel focuses on the novels of R. K. Narayan, Anita Desai, Kamala Markandaya, and Salman Rushdie and explores the tension in these novels between ideology and the generic fictive strategies that shape ideology or are shaped by it. Fawzia Afzal-Khan raises the important question of how much the usage of certain ideological strategies actually helps the ex-colonized writer deal effectively with postcolonial and postindependence trauma and whether or not the choice of a particular genre or mode employed by a writer presupposes the extent to which that writer will be successful in challenging the ideological strategies of &"containment&" perpetuated by most Western &"orientalist&" texts and writers. She argues that the formal or generic choices of the four writers studied here reveal that they are using genre as an ideological &"strategy of liberation&" to help free their peoples and cultures from the hegemonic strategies of &"containment&" imposed upon them. She concludes that the works studied here constitute an ideological rebuttal of Western writers' denigrating &"containment&" of non-Western cultures. She also notes that self-criticism, as implied in Rushdie's works, is not be confused with self-hatred, a theme found in Naipaul's work.
