A History of Punjabi Literature
by Sant Singh Sekhon

 Indiaclub.com Description

This volume provides easy access to some of the key concepts and ideas in the Indian tradition of literary theorizing. It brings together in one volume some of the most significant literary thinkers in the Indian tradition of the last two millennia.

Contemporary Indians seem to be afflicted by a sense of amnesia in relation to literary history. The affliction is more severe in the sphere of literary criticism, not only because older texts are generally unavailable, but also because modern India has lost touch with both the language and the ethos of the critical texts of ancient and medieval India.

Students of Indian literature need to have access to India's critical tradition. This volume takes a step towards providing it and giving teachers, students and scholar-in-the-making easy access to some of the key concepts and ideas in the Indian tradition of literary theorizing. In doing so, it brings together in one volume some of the most significant literary thinkers in the Indian tradition of the last two millennia.
