Deep rivers: selected writings on Tamil literature, by. Francios Gros, tr. from French by M.P. Boseman, ed. by M. Kannan

Edited/Translated by: Publications Hors Series; 10

Series: This book brings together for the first time in English all the major essays written by Francois Gros on Tamil literature. An impressive range of topics is covered here from studies of Cankam literature and devotional texts of the Tamil Bhakti traditions to contemporary Tamil novels and short stories. Many of the essays include an overview of French Indological work over past three centuries made available to the English speaking scholarly world for the first time here. While the author urges European and American scholars of Tamil history and culture to take the intellectual discourses of Tamil scholarship seriously, he insists at the same time that Tamil not be ghettoized but should rather be read alongside texts in other South Indian languages, with references to the evidence of epigraphy, numismatics, archaeology and art history.

Note: Forwarding by air/ courier inclusive in price.
