About the Book


Talking Of Moderns Is A Current Fashion, And It Has Been So Right From The Inception Of Curiosity To Defy And Decry, A Tendency To Perform Something New, Out Of An Innovative Mind, Away From The Defined Term; That Is Why The Exact Time Of Its Beginning Remains Controversial To Both The Historians And The Critics – And We Talk Of Not Only The Moderns Rather Post-post-moderns. To Me Modernity Signifies A Departure From The Set Norms At Any Point Of Time; You May Agree Or Not Agree With Me. The Writers Of The Same Pattern Have Been Criticised And Anthologised Here In A New Perspective, With A New Variance And New Facet.
