1 Eunice De Souza
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143065076 / 9780143065074; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
‘Dangerlok, she says, all dangerlok. It’s a word she’s made up and covers all occasions. Dangerous people, tiresome people, people she doesn’t like. Dangerlok.’ Rina Ferreira, middle-aged, single, lecturer of English, tentative poet and the owner of a flat in Queen’s Diamonds building, will go nowhere else in the world except for the squalid corner of Bombay she inhabits. Daily she comes across some dangerlok—and with her cigarettes and mug of jungli tea she observes everything around her and dashes off letters brimming with the details of her life to David, an old flame now in America. Funny, irreverent and sad Dangerlok is the story of an urban life, with all its absurdities, loneliness and, of course, danger.Printed Pages: 166. 026726

Early Indian Poetry in English: An Anthology: 1829-1947
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2010; 0198066805 / 9780198066804; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This diverse selection of Indian poetry in English, written in the 19th and early 20th centuries, reveals the poets' experimentation with language, theme, and form. Lyrical epics, legends, ballads, and romantic and spriritual poetry, all find place in this interesting collection. Uncovering fresh biographical material and little-known details on many of the poets of the time, it includes works by: Ram Sharma, who was much sought after despite his criticism or praise of the government in his poems and newspaper articles Manmohan Ghose, whose writings include poignant lyrics on the death of his wife, and an experimental lyrical epic on the First World War, the follies of human history, and God's role in it all Kasiprasad Ghose, who created for himself the persona of a shair in the Indi-Persian tradition, indicating that though he wrote in English his stance was that of an Indian poet Joseph Furtado a bilingual poet whose poems in English and Portuguese have been praised for their simplicity and carefully cultivated artlessness Henry Derozio, whose poetry was permeated by a distinctive melancholy that may have had its source in both his personal life and in the status of his community Toru Dutt, who brings personal memory and commentary to her treatment of mythical figures and her father Govin Chunder Dutt, whose poems are poignant expressions of the pain he felt at the loss of his children. Also featured in this anthology are the Dutt brothers, Shoshee and Greece, Annaji, B M Malabari, Sarojini Naidu, Beram Saklatvala, Samuel Solomon, and Raman Vakil. Eunice de Souza's lucid introduction and brief note on each poet sets this anthology apart from other similar collections. She critiques the work of previous anthologists for underplacing the immense role played by English in shaping 19th century Indian literature as a whole. She also challenges established notions about this body of work as being imitative, tepid, and unpat riotic. This collection will be invaluable for students of English literature and South Asian studies, as well as the general reader interested in Indian writing in English. Printed Pages: 374. 013157

When I put on the burqua, my depraved brothers had roared so much with laughter that I came to blows with them, and instead of taking them to task, Amma had smacked me . -- Ismat Chugtai, More from the Autobiography , 1981 The toes [of a Chinese lady] are crushed up under the foot, so as to render the person perfectly lame: this is a less expensive mode of keeping a woman confined to the house, than having guards and a zenana the principle is the same. --Fanny Parkes, Wanderings of a Pilgrim, 1850 My aunt was already furious with me. She used to call me nasty names for reading the Quran so much she would say, Thank God, this girl hasn't learned anything else, otherwise she would have time for nothing at all. --Bibi Ashraf, How I Learned to Read and Write , 1899 The young wives were never allowed to see their husbands during the day but often when I played in the front courtyard I heard my name called softly and would be asked to convey love-lett ers between the temporarily separated couples. --Sunity Devee, Maharanee of Cooch Behar,The Autobiography of an Indian Princess, 1921 Using nineteenth and twentieth century texts, including personal accounts, biographies, poetry, fiction, satire, and essays, this collection puts together a vivid picture women s lives behind the purdah. There are biographical pieces by major reformers, quotations from contemporary newspapers, and a piece on film images of purdah. First-person accounts include the redoubtable Begums of Bhopal who, in or out of purdah, were excellent and enlightened rulers. And finally, there is Purdah in fiction, notably the tragic failure of an experiment in bringing one s wife out of purdah, depicted by Tagore. Printed Pages: 576. 001077
