The Dalit Discourse, in India have occupied significant place in the discipline of literature as well as in the discourse of social sciences. Like any other socially active discourse, this is also dynamic and keeps engaging with newer ideas and themes. The literary expression of political consciousness, and movements among or for the Dalits across India is the new emerging trend. This trend has served enormously to the cause and widened its constituency. The present book explores relationship between politics and literature with a critical analysis of texts from the Hindi literature both by Dalits and non- Dalits. It underlines not only the major issues and concerns of the literature, but also to demonstrate that political consciousness is also expressed through many more innovative and creative methods like art and literature. This book also claims to be a provocative and thoughtful account of the debates among Dalit writers on how Dalit literature should be approached.Printed Pages: 232.
