This collection of essays focuses on critical analyses of Indian writing in English in various genres of the modern to postmodern period. The main section examines the critical reception of Indian writing in the German media and the place of Indian literature in German schools. Equally important are gender issues in prose and poetry by Indian women writers and the work of major authors like Salman Rushdie and Amitav Ghosh. The concluding section gives a survey of the work on Indian writing that has greatly increased in the German academy. The conclusion ends with a bibliography of German criticism on Indian writing.
