"This book is a collection of essays on Commonwealth Literature. The idea of bringing out a book on this area came when most of the universities and colleges have started introducing papers in this area. This book is purely thought of the scholars who are seriously in search of secondary sources. The essays written by professors and scholars are out of their specialization. In the present global scenario every nation has lost its boundary and the people living in it felt the need of a unified territory. The essays chosen for print deal with themes and concepts based on the race gender cultural cross currents displacement diaspora issues centered on women ethos and tolerance. booker winners writings were also taken by the writers for analysis. They discussed the themes in various genres novels short stories poetry and plays and the choice of the works is something new." (jacket)
