The Oxford India Anthology of Modern Urdu Literature

The Oxford India Anthology of Modern Urdu Literature comprehensively and creatively surveys the field from the mid-nineteenth to late twentieth centuries. Covering 100 years of literary production, including about 90 authors and over 130 selections, and many new translations, the twin volumes cover major genres like poetry, drama, and fiction, as well as essays, autobiography, and letters.

Rage, Revelry, and Romance...

This book presents the dilemmas, the innovations and also the helplessness of postcolonial subjects living life under the onslaught of transnational capital. The authors stories are fabulist whose intimacy with the Indian rural landscape is a protest against the rationalizing arrogance of the Western gaze its abstract and ultimately brute powers of surveillance and its defiling avarice.
