abstract

Postmodernism is a highly controversial phenomenon, that animated the debates of Western scholars during the closing decades of the twentieth century, but has this term any meaning in the Indian context? This paper aims to introduce the notion of postmodernism in Hindi literary critique and more specifically the contributions of two scholars, Sudhīś Pacaurī and Pāṇḍey Śaśibhūṣaṇ Śītāṃśu, as the possible bases for textual analysis and further theoretical investigations.
