Literature and Nationalist Ideology: Writing Histories of Modern Indian Languages
Routledge, Aug 3, 2017 - History - 387 pages
Writing histories of literature means making selections, passing value judgments, and incorporating or rejecting foregoing traditions. The book argues that in many parts of India, literary histories play an important role in creating a cultural ethos. They are closely linked with nationalism in general and various regional ‘sub-nationalisms’ in particular. The contributors to this volume look at a great variety of aspects of the historiography of modern regional languages of India.
