Title Review

The essays examine the diverse modes of narration of the self in literary texts and present views on construction of the self, the way language affects the persona within the text, words as a means of liberation and the importance of the perception of the reader vis-à-vis the self as expressed in the text. They view the impact of writers’ locations in history, nation and diaspora on narratives and the human images they contain, and the effect of translations between languages. The contributions by noted writers and critics explore literary texts, autobiographies and films afresh for the purpose, relating them to their aesthetics, social, cultural and psychological contexts.
