Book Description
This anthology comprises a selection of formative literary writings in Hindi and Urdu from the second half of the nineteenth century, leading up to Indian Independence and the creation of Pakistan. The text here are mostly hitherto unpublished translations into English. The anthology provides a picture of how nationalism, as a cultural ideology and political movement, was formed in literature. Unlike other anthologies, this one focuses on writings in two North Indian vernaculars with a contested relationship : Hindi and Urdu. The combination is deliberate: the relationship of Hindi and Urdu was being consolidated and sealed even as these text were being written. There are two separate Introductions to this anthology. Each grounds, respectively, the peculiar paths taken by Hindi and Urdu proponents and practitioners.
