The Great Encounter: A Study of Indo-American Literary and Cultural Relations
The Great Encounter: A Study of Indo-American Literary and Cultural Relations
Description

From the Jacket:

A sensitive, perceptive, and comprehensive analysis of literary and cultural relations between India and the United States from their beginnings in the seventeenth century until the present day, The Great Encounter not only examines the specific reciprocal influence of individual authors and thinkers, but also explores in depth and detail the myriad and complex ways in which the two countries have impinged upon the consciousness of each other. It also stresses the role of inter-cultural communication in dispelling stereotyped images which nations and peoples tend to have of one another due to lack of information, and in bringing about a genuine understanding firmly rooted in a realistic assessment of values, objectives, and aspirations.

Although the primary focus in literary, the work is written from a consistently broad perspective which includes other spheres of cultural activity such as music, painting, sculpture, film, and journalism. Lucid and lively in style, and eminently readable, it is addressed not only to the specialist but to the interested general reader as well.

About the Author:

Dr. R.K. Gupta is Professor of English at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh and has taught at Kurukshetra University, University of Rhode Island, and Memphis State University.
