About the Book The book has extended and widened the implications of the term “New Literatures in English” to include an assessment of New Humanities and other areas which continue to attract the polyphony of marginal voices in the critical arena of literature which is simultaneously local, mofussil, regional, national, transnational, global, glocal and finally, universal. — Prof. S.Z.H. Abidi Former Head of the Dept. of English and MEL, University of Lucknow The anthology Major Voices in New Literatures in English deals with multifarious modes of colonial and postcolonial studies in the light of constantly changing human relations and their identity with harmonizing effect of the polyphony dissolving national, geographical, communal and religious boundaries and disrupting all levels of hierarchy. The book proceeds with the emergence of “New Literatures” as a reaction against British colonization of the Third World territories, evolution of Feminism as a reaction against physical and psychological colonization of women, prominence of multiculturalism (implication of local dialects) as a reaction against linguistic colonization, and Dalit narratives as a protest against internal colonization that resulted in Bakhtin’s polyphony registering significance of all voices and recreating universal ‘glocal’ human identity. Major Voices in New Literatures in English is a postcolonial offshoot which is replete with the voices of resistance against the First World and counter reaction of the Third World countries such as India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, South Africa, etc. to the same. Originating from resistance against colonialism, it comes to recognition of its own identity and finally struggles to assert its genius all around and its worth at the global platform of epistemic market. Thus, the present anthology shows that the New Literatures are an evidence of polyphony (multiple voices) which has succeeded in changing the Western outlook from xenophobia to xenophilia.
