Marked by filiations and affiliations Contemporary Literature in English reflects a sort of nativised hegemonic sensibility with a view to reaching against the empire and its onslaughts. The volume opens up fresh vistas of critical enquiry and interpretation in respect of Contemporary Literature in English.
Besides British and American literature, Commonwealth literature has emerged as an important component of Contemporary Literature in English. Divided into two sections, the volume deals with the Commonwealth writers, like Nissim Ezekiel, A K Ramanujan, Jayant Mahapatra, Kamal Das, Bharati Mukherjee, Margaret Atwood and Arundhati Roy in the opening section.
The second section titled British and American Literature examines contemporary authors like Donald Davie, R W Emerson, Tennessee Williams, and Arthur Miller from different angles.
