FOREWORD


Mr. Dipak Giri’s book covers a wide perspective of Indian English Fiction written by competent hands, who contributed on the major novelists of the contemporary scene on diverse issues, mostly political and sociological, which are now highlights of the syllabi of all Indian universities and colleges. Fiction deals with contemporary realities from Rajmohan’s Wife to the latest creations. In between, in the early part of the twentieth century, before Raja Rao and R.K. Narayan appeared on the scene, there had been masterful attempts at psychological and mysterious short fictions, like “The Phantom Hour” and “The Door at Abelard” by Sri Aurobindo, which are unfortunately little known.

This anthology also contains socio-psychological studies on love and doom, despair and glory, the woman’s question, the marginalized majority, the Dalits and the like. It is a comprehensive volume, covering large spaces and reflecting on the leading novelists of our day, from Salman Rushdie down to Chetan Bhagat, and even on the classics of the earlier days. The variety in this co-operative anthology is quite remarkable.

I hope it will benefit both the teachers and the students.
