Title Review

The articles examine one of the most famous Indian English novels, Kanthapura (published 1938), that approaches a crucial period in Indian history by presenting life in rural South India of the 1930s. The set of critical essays interpret Kanthapura at various levels to show that its significance is deep and many-layered. It probes into the novel as encapsulating the vision and impact of Gandhi on a society throbbing for freedom and as a novel portraying rural India with realism. It views Raja Rao’s preoccupation with typically Indian themes and style in the novel -- his concern with the pastoral romance, Hindu mythology and folklore narrative reflected in it.
