About the Book


The Present Stature Of Indian English Literature Is Far Away From Its Earlier Image Of Being ‘derivative’ And ‘imitative’. With Its Own ‘independent’ And ‘distinct’ Identity It Suffers From Certain Ambiguities. These Writers, Claiming To Be Indian Or Included In The Indian English Literature, Have Settled Somewhere Else, Away From Their Homeland Or Prefer To Be Divorced From Their Ancestral Being, And Yet Their Works Have An Inclination Towards Their Roots. Indian Writers Bracketed Under Expatriate/diaspora Writers Reflect Certain Exclusive Trends That Are Altogether Different From The Major Stay-at-home Writers. This Is A Study That Probes The Indian English Diasporic Fiction In Its Different Perspectives. It Seeks To Investigate/examine The Aesthetic Implications Of Expatriation For The Fictional Genre. It Is The Outcome Of The New Literary Situation Created By Deregionalised Writers.
