Postmodern and postcolonial women’s writing has shown a wide spectrum of theoretical inclusion. Works by writers such as Iris Murdoch, Muriel Spark, Doris Lessing, Toni Morrison, Nadine Gordimer, Alice Walker, Margaret Atwood, Hélèn Cixous, Zadie Smith, Kiran Desai, Jhumpa Lahiri, Ama Ata Aidoo, Mahasweta Devi, Taslima Nasreen, Bapsi Sidhwa, Angela Carter, Hilary Mantel, A. S. Byatt, J. K. Rowling, Sylvia Plath, Adrienne Rich, Maya Angelou, Carol Ann Duffy and others have explored the various literary genres with their personal faculties for interpreting sociocultural, historical and political conditions of their contemporary conditions, status of women and their role, their implementation of the advancements in theories in humanities and social sciences.

2. Philosophy and Poetry
     (Edited Volume)

Poetry has been a continuous presence in the realm of philosophy. While the conflation often engendered poetic synchronization to the epistemic and aesthetic concerns of philosophy the cross-currents also opened up interesting instances of dissent. The resultant proliferation of ideas gave impetus to ‘other’ readings of poetry parallel to its traditional nuance. This volume presents scholarly essays that take into account philosophy’s engagement with poetry that goes back to Plato and Aristotle, and is a continuing imperative in the philosophical paradigms of Kant, Hegel, Rousseau, Dilthey, Nietzsche, Jean-Luc Nancy, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, Bakhtin, Heidegger, Sartre, Blanchot, Derrida, Adorno, Agamben and others.
