Description

Literature East and West: Essays Presented to R K DasGupta brings together scholars from many countries representing many disciplines such as English and comparative literature, literary theory, philosophy, linguistic, history and archaeology. The result is a collection of essays which provides insights into subjects ranging from an interpretation of Homer’s Ode on Man to Shakespeare, Milton, Blake, Roethke and T S Eliot; Michael Madhusudan Dutta, Tagore, and nineteenth century Bengali Renaissance; Anglo-Indian fiction; drama and narrative, poetry and the academy, and in search of a valid response to literature. In their diversity of themes and outlook, they suggest something of the richness of contemporary literary studies as also the range of intellectual engagements of Professor R K DasGupta-the scholar they seek to honour.

Professor R K DasGupta was Tagore Professor of Bengali at the University of Delhi (1962-77), distinguished visiting Professor of comparative Literature at the University of Alberta (1971-1973), and Visiting Professor of English at the University of South Louisiana (1985). He retired as the first Director of the National Library (1977-1980) and now lives in Calcutta.
