About the BookThe literary canon of twentieth-century illustrates an aesthetic shift marked by a tendency of literature to turn more experimental, more anxious, and more self-questioning. The ‘two World Wars, the social and political upheavals, the consolidation and expansion of multinational capitalism, the emergence of the information age, the struggle of postcolonial voices after the end of the British Empire, and the changing configuration of a new multicultural population,’ led to a refashioning in the arena of literary studies. Encompassing an array of diverse aesthetics, styles and approaches, the essays in, “Twentieth Century Literature: Emerging Trends” Aim to discuss the new developments in twentieth century literature, both by embracing new critical paradigms and by re-examining the relationship between the transnational/cultural, the global and the postcolonial in a rapidly evolving field. The anthology humbly seeks to take up the challenges in twentieth-century literary tradition which have been explored various by writers interrogating the cultural implications of generic boundaries, by feminist writers rereading gender in conjunction with other categories such as race and class, by multicultural writers whose work emanates from and approaches the postcolonial situation and reveal new insights into the politics of literary canon formation. It will undoubtedly prove valuable to the students, researches and scholars, researchers and students of English Literature.About the Author/sSunita Sinha, a gold medallist from the Patna University, Bihar has been teaching as an Associate Professor in English in Women’s College, Samastipur, L.N.
