A sequel to a History of Indian Literature: 1800-1910, this volume is a self-contained narrative of the literary activities of the period of its history - the struggle against the colonial rule.
It presents the Indian literature, not in isolation from one another, but as related components in a larger complex, conspicuous by he existence of age-old multilingualism and variety of literary traditions.
Apart from an incisive account of texts, movements and personalities of this period, this work provokes a serious debate on the nature of Indian literature, and offers a defense as well as a new model of literary history.
