The metaphysics of text by Sukanta Chaudhuri( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The advances of book history and editorial theory remind us that it is vital to look behind the text we read. Sukanta Chaudhuri explores, at a very fundamental level, how texts are constituted and how they work. He applies insights from many lines of study not brought together so closely before: theories of language, signification and reception alongside bibliography, textual criticism, editorial theory and book history. Blending case studies with general observation and theory, he considers the implications of the physical form of the text; the relation between oral and written language, and between language and other media; the new territory opened up by electronic texts; and special categories like play-books and translations. Drawing on an exceptionally wide range of material, both Western literature and Indian works from Sanskrit aesthetics to the poetry of Rabindranath Tagore, Chaudhuri sets a new agenda for the study of texts

Selected short stories by Rabindranath Tagore( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. In 1913, Rabindranath Tagore became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, and he remains one of the most important voices of Bengali culture to this day. These short stories, written mostly in the 1890s, vividly portray Bengali life and culture. Tagore's treatment of caste culture, bureaucracy and poverty paint a vivid portrait of nineteenth-century India, and all are interwoven with Tagore's perceptive eye for detail, strong sense of humanity and deep affinity for the natural world. Tagore's stories continue to rise above geographic and cultural boundaries to capture the imaginations of readers around the world

Renaissance essays for Kitty Scoular Datta( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renaissance Essays for Kitty Scoular Datta brings together a rich collection of new work on the English and European Renaissance by scholars from three continents. Professor Datta, who now lives in Oxford, spent most of her working life in India, where she helped greatly in activating Renaissance studies and setting up links between Indian and Western scholars in the field. This collection has been initiated by Jadavpur University in Calcutta, where she taught for many years." "An important function of the collection is the link set up by most essays between the English Renaissance and the continental, particularly the humanist currents. This implies attention to the classical elements of the Renaissance, though medieval continuities are also explored in several pieces. There are studies of Renaissance approaches to reading, and to time and history, as well as essays on Spenser, George Herbert, Bacon and Milton. But the greatest number, as might be expected, relate to Renaissance English drama. There are five essays on Shakespeare, and others on Marlowe, Jonson and Middleton, as well as the evolution of the drama generally." "The contributors include most of the eminent Renaissance scholars in India, as well as Professor Datta's colleagues and friends from British and American universities. There is a bibliography of her writings in an appendix."--Jacket

In the twelfth issue of The Shakespearean International Yearbook, a Special Section in eight essays explores India's intense engagement with Shakespeare, the longest of any country outside the Western world. Treating cinema, theater and education in particular, contributors examine how Shakespearean traffic has been routed through many languages and cultural contexts across the subcontinent, from the early nineteenth to the early twentieth century. Introducing a new Yearbook feature, this volume also presents two review essays; the essay topics are 'New Biography Studies, Queer Turns in Theory, and Shakespearean Utility, ' and 'Textual Studies, Performance Criticism, and Digital Humanities'. The special section is further supplemented by two additional essays, on Hamlet and Shylock respectively. Among the contributors are Shakespearean scholars from India, Poland, the UK, and the US

Bichitra : the making of an online tagore variorum by Sukanta Chaudhuri( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book documents the creation of the Bichitra Online Tagore Variorum, a publicly accessible database of Rabindranath Tagore's complete works in Bengali and English totaling some 140,000 pages of primary material. Chapters cover innovative aspects of the site, all replicable in other projects: a hyperbibliography; a search engine and hyperconcordance working across the database; and a unique collation program comparing variant texts at three levels. There are also chapters on the special problems of processing manuscripts, and on planning the website. Early chapters take readers through the history of the project, an overview of Tagore’s works, and the Bengali writing system with the challenges of adapting it to electronic form. The name Bichitra, meaning "various" in Bengali, alludes both to the great variety of Tagore’s works and to their various stages of composition. Beyond their literary excellence, they are notable for their sheer quantity, the number of variant forms of a great many items, and their afterlife in translation, often the poet’s own. Seldom if ever has the same writer revised his material and recast it across genres on such a scale. Tagore won the Nobel Prize in 1913. By its value-added presentation of this range of material, Bichitra can be a model for future databases covering an author’s complete works or other major corpus of texts. It offers vastly expanded access to Tagore’s writings, and enables new kinds of research including computational text analysis. The “book of the website” shows in technical and human terms how researchers with interests in the arts, literature and technology can collaborate on cultural informatics projects.
