About the Book Aspects of Contemporary World Literature is an unfailingly resourceful and informative book and its penetrating contemporary analyses bring into view immensely fruitful and illuminating new perspectives on contemporary world literature. It comprises five parts, and each part is closely-knit with the other parts with its overt emphasis on the strand of contemporaneity. Rooted as it is in concept of world literature, Part A studies interestingly major contemporary British literary artists like Pinter, Farrell and others. Part B examines not surprisingly but unabashedly the modern American artistic sensibilities like Rita Dove, Maya Angelou, Jerzy Kosinski, Thomas King and Toni Morrison. Part C analyses meaningfully and conveniently the most representative literary endeavours of Soyinka, Achebe, Ngugi, Naipaul, and Derek Walcott from the Third World. Part D scans authoritatively the selections from contemporary Indian writers in English like Vikram Seth, Badal Sircar, and Kiran Desai, besides the others. Part E heralds tacitly and also articulates compellingly a seamless global network of mass media including its affiliations with lexicography and critical theory. Internationally acclaimed critics like Howard R. Wolf, Wail S. Hassan, M.K. Naik, Prema Nandakumar and Shyamala A. Narayan enrich this scholarly work with their perceptive insights into the fiesta of discourse on contemporary world literature. This book of engrossing interest will be a prized possession for any library—personal or institutional. Printed Pages: 368
