Description

Maithili has a long tradition of at least seven hundred years; being on centre stage in the whole of north-eastern India including Nepal, it has inspired the growth of literature in the entire region. The present work endeavours to supplement the earlier work by Dr. Jayakant Mishra, (Sahitya Akademi, 1976) by updating, elaborating and analysing the latest trends; it dwells at length on contemporary literature in all its forms, focusing on the spirit of Mithila today. A careful study of its salient features will show how modern Maithili literature is striving to catch up with other Indian literatures.Now that Maithili is on the national map, the present work has in mind the general reader who may not be conversant with the current growth of Maithili.
