Description

A History of Panjabi Literature Volume One by Professor Sant Singh Sekhon is a welcome addition to the existing studies in English of Panjabi literature. It carries forward and further and further enriches the tradition, initiated by Dr Mohan Singh Diwana who ha blazed the trail in this domain. Professor Sant Singh Sekhon has brought his ripe and comprehensive vision to bear upon this project. The introductory chapter brings into focus the background of Panjabi Literature and presents a brief survey of its growth and development. The book offers fresh perspectives on the panorama of the Panjabi Literature, chronicled in this volume.

This volume is the beginning of a history of Panjabi Literature in English, in such detail as has not been attempted before. Indeed, it is a step towards the fulfillment of an ambition, and the Panjabi University Publication Bureau has taken it. Detailed history of Panjabi Literature has been attempted before this only by the Department of Languages in Panjabi Language; but this is a more ambitious attempt such as only a University could support. Some people would even be so supercilious enough to think that Panjabi Literature has not profited enough for such an ambitious enterprise.
