About the Book


Though Twin-born With Indian English Literature, Anglo-Indian Literature Is Not As Popular As The Other. Chiefly Written During The Colonial Period, It Comprises Works Which Are Everlasting Sources Of Information As Well As Interest. As In Indian English Literature, In Anglo-Indian Literature Too, The Novel Is The Most Popular Form. The Anglo-Indian Novel Depicts The Experience Of The British In India. It Also Registers How The British Responded To The Geographical, Socio-cultural And Political Climates Of India.


Paul Scott Is A “Jewel In The Crown” Among The Anglo-Indian Novelists. Endowed With Photographic Memory, Minute Observation, Classic Narrative, And, Above All, An Unbiased Mind, Scott Has Pen-pictured The Closing Years Of The Raj In His Masterpiece The Raj Quartet. Set In India Between 1942 And 1947, The Raj Quartet Captured Some Of The Finest Moments In Indian History. The Most Striking Feature Of The Four-volume Novel Is Its Unprejudiced Attitude Towards India And Indians. The Book Paul Scott’s Vision Of India Is A Humble Tribute To The Impartial Attitude Of Paul Scott.
