1 Ira Valeria Sarma
The Laghukatha: A Historical and Literary Analysis of a Modern Hindi Prose Centre
Walter De Gruyter; Berlin, Germany; 2003; 3110175932 / 9783110175936; First Edition; Hardcover; As New; 
The book presented here is the first work of Western literary criticism to examine the Hindi laghukatha- - a modern Indian prose genre that has been published since the 1970s in Hindi newspapers and magazines and is characterised by its concise form (500 words on average) and socio-political agenda. The importance of the genre within the Hindi literary scene lies in the fact that the laghukatha- is based on indigenous genres which have been modernised, whereas the Hindi short story and the novel are Western genres that have been appropriated and Indianised. A thorough investigation of around 280 primary texts accompanied by an evaluation of the relevant Hindi criticism gives a comprehensive literary analysis of this genre and its historical development. This allows, in conclusion, to delineate an "ideal type" of laghukatha-, suggesting a range of compulsory, desirable and optional features. English translations of almost 50 representative Hindi texts complete the picture and thus provide an insight into this genre so far unknown to a Western audience. Printed Pages: 356. Slightly rubbed boards. 025750
