Book Description

About The Book

TWO DECADES OF DOGRI LITERATURE is a sequel to the History of Dogri Literature by the same author published by the Sahitya Akademi in 1976. It carries forward the story of the development in different genres of Dogri literature in the eighth and ninth decades of this century. It also dwells at length on some of the geo-historical and political contexts of Dogri language and literature and the constraints faced by it in its greater development. The period covered in this volume is important in this evolution when this literature shows signs of maturing in some genres and a certain widening of the spectrum of literary expression.

About the Author

SHIVANATH is a Dogri writer, scholar and translator. Besides the History of Dogri Literature and a monograph on Bhagawat Prasad Sathe, published by the Sahitya Akademi, he has to his credit more than seven publications. He was also associated with the Dogri section of Sahitya Akademi's prestigious projects Encyclopaedia of Indian Literature, A History of Indian Literature and Anthology of Modern Indian Literature. He has been member of Sahitya Akademi's Advisory Board for Dogri and Convenor for Dogri and a Member of the Executive Board of the Sahitya Akademi.


Between 1944 (the year of the founding of Dogri Sanstha, Jammu and commencement of Dogri literary movement) and 1969 (the year when Dogri was recognized as an independent modern Indian language by the Sahitya Akademi), Dogri literature was built up, brick by brick as it were, with the dedication of a group of literary and cultural activists of the Dogri Sanstha, Jammu, and some likeminded members of organisations like Dogra Mandal, Jammu and Dogra Mandal, Delhi on the foundations of the common folk literature heritage of Dogras.
