This edited volume on Indian Drama in English, including Indian plays in English translation, with contributions from experts specializing on the different playwrights, covers the works of major dramatists who have given a distinctive shape to this enormous mass of creative material.

This comprehensive and well-researched text, in its second edition, continues to explore the major Indian playwrights in English. It encompasses works like Rabindranath Tagore's Red Oleanders; Vijay Tendulkar's Silence! The Court is in Session, Kanyadaan, The Vultures, and Kamala; Girish Karnad's Hayavadana, Tughlaq, Naga Mandala, and The Fire and the Rain; Mahasweta Devi's The Mother of 1084; Mahesh Dattani's Final Solutions, Tara, Dance Like a Man, and Bravely Fought the Queen; Habib Tanvir's Charandas Chor; Indira Parthasarathy's Auranzeb; and Badal Sircar's Evam Indrajit. The book focuses on different aspects of their plays and shows how the Indian Drama in English, while maintaining its relation with the tradition, has made bold innovations and fruitful experiments in terms of both thematic and technical excellence.

New to This Edition

The new edition incorporates two new essays on very popular plays of all times--one, Manipuri dramatist Ratan Thiyam's Chakravyuh, and the second, Maharashtrian playwright, Mahesh Elkunchwar's Desire in the Rocks. The essays added give a panoramic view of the plays in succinct style and simple language.

The book is intended for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of English literature. Besides, it will also be valuable for those who wish to delve deeper into the plays covered and analyzed in the text.
