India Through Literature: An Annotated Bibliography for Teaching India. Part II: India Through Contemporary Fiction.
Johnson, Donald; Johnson, Jean
The purpose of this bibliography is to suggest interesting and educational Indian novels and short stories which are appropriate for American secondary school student use. The best books written by Indians in their own languages and translated for the English speaking reader are included along with many written in English. There are two lists: 1) those books most appropriate for average high school students, and for the basic library collection; and, 2) a supplementary list with several for the superior student. The most useful way to use any of these works is as outside reading with students reading different books, or several students reading selected chapters of the larger volumes. The works in both lists are rearranged and described in chronological order for studying the historical aspects of the Indian experience from the Mutiny of 1857 to the present; then, in topic order covering various aspects of Indian life: village life, the role of women, marriage, water, social change, and caste. In all, approximately twenty seven novels and nine short stories are described, SO 001 619 through SO 001 623 are related documents. (SBE)
