Narrative: A Seminar
Narrative: A Seminar
Description
From the Jacket:

Narrative : A Seminar is a collection of papers presented at the international Seminar on Narrative held by the Sahitya Akademi in 1990. the discussion here cuts across a number of languages, genres, art forms and historical periods. The participants are celebrated scholars and writers: Jonathan Culler, Harbhajan Singh, Earl Miner, Birendra Kumar Bhattacharyya, Holger Klein, Bhisham Sahni, Ramchandra Gandhi, Mona Abousenna, Douwe Fokkema, Tania Carvalhal, Sitakant Mahapatra, Vidya Niwas Misra, Milan V. Dimic, T. Morimoto, Suresh Awasthi, Nabaneeta Deb Sen, Fridrun Rinner, Milan Djurcinov, Qurratulain Hyder, Maria Seixo, Karl Maurer, Yves Chevrel, John Neubauer, Rai Anand Krishna, Bhaskar Chandravarkar, Gerald Gillespie, N.C. Jain, Sisir Kumar Das, Ashok Ranade and Amiya Dev. The volume in six parts beginning with the first hand testament of creative writers, moving on to oral and written narrative of the past, modern fictional narrative, painting, music, film and theatre, is a major contribution to the theory and practice of Narratology : a must for academics and interest readers, a pride for libraries.

Amiya Dev (b. 1935), the editor of the present volume is Professor and Dean, Faculty of Arts, Jadavpur University and editor of the Jadavpur journal of Comparative Literature.

Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
