The short story has become an increasingly important genre since the mid-nineteenth century. Complementing The Cambridge Introduction to the American Short Story, this book examines the development of the short story in Britain and other English-language literatures. It considers issues of form and style alongside - and often as part of - a broader discussion of publishing history and the cultural contexts in which the short story has flourished and continues to flourish. In its structure the book provides a chronological survey of the form, usefully grouping writers to show the development of... View more info

Civility, Literature and Culture in British India: 1822-1922

Price: $19.95

Publisher: London, UK, Routledge:

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 027056

ISBN: 0415304350

Condition: New


"Civility," a normative code of behaviour in British nineteenth-century society, became a means of imposing control and effecting exclusion when transferred to the colonial domain. This study examines the manner in which "civility" emerged as the ethos of the British colonial state in the Indian subcontinent and emerged as a key discursive idea around which questions about citizenship, education, gender, race, labor and bureaucratic or civil authority were negotiated. This discourse of civility, Anindyo Roy argues, provided the basis for disciplinary mechanisms essential to man... View more info

The First Promise

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 031640

ISBN: 812503790X

The First Promise is a translation of Ashapurna Debi’s novel, Pratham Pratisruti , originally published in Bengali in 1964. Celebrated as one of the most popular and path-breaking novels of its time, it has received continual critical acclaim: the Rabindra Puraskar (the Tagore Prize) in 1966 and the Bharitiya Jnanpith, India’s highest literary award, in 1977. Spanning the late eighteenth and early twentieth centuries, Ashapurna tells the story of the struggles and efforts of women in nineteenth-century, colonial Bengal in a deceptively easy and conversational style. The charming eight-year... View more info

Mole!

Seller ID: 031644

ISBN: 8125026827

Condition: New


The fictional events narrated in Mole! ?an English translation of Otran, a novel by Ashokamitran ?take place within a period of seven months, nearly all of them in the American Midwest. The narrator, a culturally rooted writer from Chennai, is transplanted amidst a motley group of fellow-writers from distant parts of the world, all of them as dangerously dislocated as him. Deprived of the language that has brought them fulfillment and distinction, these writers struggle to retain their place of precarious honour in a strange, unfamiliar and sometimes hostile environment. And in the background ... View more info

Sand and Other Stories

By: Ashokamitran

Price: $10.95

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Orient BlackSwan: 2002

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 031649

ISBN: 8125022686

Condition: New


This book is a translated collection of 3 novellas, spanning three decades of Ashokamitran’s work. The stories are about women trapped by an almost absolute lack of resources (financial, intellectual and emotional). The narrative in all three novellas moves in a series of short scenes, building tension with a relentless layering of detail. The exploitation of these women and their daily struggle against it is exposed in all its terrifying ordinariness. The stories have all the identifiable characteristics of Ashokamitran’s writing—irony, interiority, sensitivity. Printed Pages: 133. View more info

Codes of Misconduct: Regulating Prostitution in Late Colonial Bombay

ISBN: 8189884425

Condition: New


"This remarkable study focuses on the relationship between forms of prostitution, discourses on law making, and law enforcement practices. Across the 19th and early 20th centuries, the colonial government in Bombay city formulated laws on prostitution that were enormously repetitive. Activities such as soliciting men, pimping and procuring women and girls for prostitution were banned in identical ways in multiple eras. Across the same hundred years, commercial sex grew vast in scale, and Bombay became a node in a transnational sex trade circuit. This book argues that while the expansion o... View more info
