About the Book Since Simone de Beauvoir first proclaimed that ‘One is not born a woman, one becomes one’, the study of gender has become one of the most significant new disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. Enriching our knowledge of the representations that inform our understanding of masculinity, femininity and queerity, “Rethinking Gender: Masculinity, Femininity and Queerity in Postcolonial Indian Fiction” examines, amongst other things, the meaning and relevance of gender on various levels. This book will attempt to establish a central argument that will enable readers to see an emerging pattern in which issues of femininity, masculinity, and conflicting sexualities could be examined, thus, providing a multi-faceted approach to the central question of the way in which gender is being represented in literary works of the Indian novelists. This multilayered book, lucidly written and theoretically exhilarating, will be an invaluable addition to students and academics in gender studies, literature, cultural studies, and a range of other disciplines.
