Contemporary Indian Literature in English
Description
Foreword

On a request from the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Professor Shiv K. Kumar gave a silver jubilee lecture at the Himachal Pradesh University in 1991, the silver jubilee year of the Institute. At the same time, he agreed to come to the Institute as a Visiting Professor and gave three lectures. All these four lectures related to contemporary Indian literary in English: poetry, short story, novel, and literary creation and criticism. It was decided to publish them together.

Professor Kumar has brought his creative sensibility and critical acumen to bear upon a vast field of great importance to millions of his contemporaries in India and abroad. His treatment of Indian literature in English is sensitive and incisive. It is marked by a rare economy of words. Consequently this short book reads like a long poem.

I feel embarrassed to find this ‘thing of beauty’ dedicated to me. But Professor Shiv K. Kumar has exercised a right which cannot be denied to him.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)
Hithesh, USA

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
