Romancing Theory, Riding Interpretation: (In)fusion Approach, Salman Rushdieby Ranjan Ghosh
Romancing Theory, Riding Interpretation reaffirms the need to look into the productive inventiveness of theoretical approaches and the consequences that this might have on our understanding of literature. (In)fusion Approach is one deeply provocative example, pregnant with possibilities. Through an innovative cluster of essays, this book shows the romance that theory can bring into our interpretation of literature within the terrain of Salman Rushdie’s fiction. It challenges the conventional, the reified, and the institutional ways of thinking and evaluation, leading to a fusion and frission of critical thought and traditions of ideas. Romancing Theory, Riding Interpretation, in its border-crossed, concerted, and compelling arguments, is sure to find its niche in courses on theory, reading habits of literature, postcolonial seminars, as well as in modules of interdisciplinary studies.
