Gender, Space and Creative Imagination is about contemporary women's writing in India and its experiential, ideological and representational topography. It offers a nuanced critique of the gender-space dialectics that underlines and often engages the attention of women writers in this country. By critically examining the selected works of Krishna Sobti, Mahasweta Devi, Kamal Desai, Ambai and Githa Hariharan, this book puts in perspective the vibrant heterogeneity of their creative corpus and its attendant concerns. Reading afresh these narratives as empowering aesthetic and discursive endeavours that consciously remap woman's gendered reality, this book helps to unravel Indian women writing's aesthetics of creation, critique and conditioning, and simultaneously puts into perspective its activist shift from re-presentation to self presentation. Printed Pages: 224.
