Discovering The Inscape- Essays on Literature (An Old and Rare Book)
|Publisher:||B.R. PUBLISHING CORPORATION|
Taken together the essays in the present volume seek to focus on a wide range of literary creativity which highlight this assertion. They range from the Oriya Bhagavata, Bhima Bhoi, a blind tribal poet, Tagore and Kumaran Asan to Rilke, Camus and Carlos Fuentes. Some of the essays were presented in national and international seminars and subsequently published. They look into the nature of creativity and the mechanism of discovering the inscape of imagination and emotion. They emphasise the role of time in literature, and the role of literature in time. In another age both the roles seemed fairly clear and simple. Today, the author feels, perhaps we can be e of neither.
