Poetry, Politics and Culture synopsis
This book depicts the journey of Indian poetic imagination - in Hindi, Punjabi and Indian English - from its original quasi-spiritual longing to the interventions of activists in the public sphere. While post-colonialist post-colonial nationalism is attracted to post-colonialism in the post-1990s period, it seeks to rewrite and publish the changing coordinates of the national imagination in terms of opposing the dissatisfaction of the nation's sub-class.
The book is multidisciplinary: it studies Indianpoetry from the new emerging necessities of postcolonialism, new history (secondary, Dalits and Diaspora), nationalism, and cultural studies. The book covers the two main Indianlanguages - Hindi and Punjabi - as well as English-Hindi poetry, a textual study of some 150 poetry collections in these languages.
It represents a pioneering path in his study of secular poetry written in the so-called public title, with great interest in his participation in political and cultural processes also in the nation-making.
This advanced book should be of use to Indian linguists in English, Hindi and Punjabi, gender studies, Dalit and Diaspora studies, postcolonial poetry, and female literature readers in South Asia.
