Our Novels in English

Loading...
Is it possible to capture the multilingual reality of India by using only one language, English? This question has been a constant one in the history of Indian English literature. Indeed since 1930, when Mulk Raj Anand, Raja Rao and R.K.

'Our Novels in English' tries to find an answer to this question through a journey into the world of Indian English literature; from the classic work of 'Rajmohan's Wife' by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee to the urban experiences of authors such as Salman Rushdie and Amitava Ghosh.
