India Fifty Years After Independence - Images in Literature, Film and Media
Parm Kaur, Black Arts Alliance Newsletter
A collection of papers presented at conference in Catalunya (yes in Spain) India: Fifty years after Independence, this book is an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to introduce themselves to Indian literature from 1947 to the present day from the Indian diaspora, with slighter chapters on film and the media. This book contextualises key figures of Indian literature, both novelist and poets, within the political and social aftermath of Partition, and offers insight to the complex issues of identity tackled by many post-colonial writers with key references to postmodern theorists including Edward Said, Helene Cixous, and Julia Kristeva.
