Reception of English: Cultural Responses in Telugu Documents by M Sridhar (University of Hyderabad, India)
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Reception of English: Cultural responses in Telugu Documents is a collection of various text types written in English by Telugu writers along with English translations of Telugu texts. The documents included in this collection span over two hundred years of the Telugu-English interface with the earliest dating back to 1825 and the most recent to 2006 and cover a wide range of selections from autobiography, personal/historical essays, official reports, creative writing and criticism. This study attempts to record the responses of the Telugu people to the British - their rule, the introduction of the study of English, English manners, English culture, etc. Unlike most academic enterprises that study the interface between Indian languages and English that tend to focus on the influence of English on Indian languages, the documents compiled here represent different degrees of accommodation, incorporation and rejection of colonial culture. This book will be of use to students, scholars and teachers of cultural studies, postcolonial studies, translation studies and comparative literature.
