9781403964007: Colonial Karma: Self, Action, and Nation in the Indian English Novel

Although the Indian novel in English has received unprecedented acclaim on the global stage over the last two decades, most readers outside India are unaware of its long history. Colonial Karma offers a much-needed overview, tracing the Indian English novel from its nineteenth-century colonial origins to the turn of the twenty-first century, with each chapter focusing on a particular historical moment. It links the development of the novel in India with that of nationalism, showing how English-educated Indians sought to solve their problems of individual and civic action by redefining the concept of karma to create a new, hybrid idea of action. The term "colonial karma" refers both to plot action in the literary texts and, more broadly, to the persistence of colonialist and nationalist thought in post-independence India. After considering early works in English and in Indian languages by Bankimchandra Chatterjee, O. Chandu Menon, and Rabindranath Tagore, Colonial Karma discusses novels by a wide range of writers, including K.S. Venkataramani, Mulk Raj Anand, R.K. Narayan, Raja Rao, Anita Desai, Salman Rushdie, Shashi Deshpande, Githa Hariharan, and Arundhati Roy.

About the Author :

Josna E. Rege is Associate Professor of English at Worcester State College in Worcester, Massachusetts. She has taught at Dartmouth College, Tufts University, and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Review :

"Josna Rege's Colonial Karma is a work that meets the urgent demands of scholarship in the field of postcolonial literary studies, a very major component of which is the Indian novel in English. This book is a major pioneering work in that it provides both a broad historical survey as well as a close historical analysis of the English Indian novel. Colonial Karma is admirable not only for the sweep and comprehensiveness with which it outlines a literary history, but also for the nuanced, scholarly, and insightful critical sensibility that informs the readings of individual texts. These are nothing short of masterly. In short, it is my unequivocal opinion that Colonial Karma is an important and timely work."--Rajeswari Sunder Rajan, Professorial Fellow, Wolfson College and Reader in the Faculty of English, University of Oxford

Description du livre Palgrave USA, United States, 2004. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Colonial Karma tracks the Indian English novel from its colonial origins to the present, each chapter focusing on a particular historical moment. Linking the novel s development with that of Indian cultural nationalism, it argues that nationalism seeks to solve the problem of action for its middle class subject by redefining the Bhagavad Gita s concept of karma for political purposes. Two figures serve to exemplify this problem: Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita and Saleem in Midnight s Children. After considering influential early novels in Indian languages, Colonial Karma discusses novels in English by Narayan, Anand, Rao, Anita Desai, Salman Rushdie, Shashi Deshpande and Githa Hariharan.
