Approaches to Hindi Intellectual History

The Hindi Canon: Intellectuals, Processes, Criticism by Mrityunjay Tripathi, translated by Shad Naved, Delhi: Tulika Press, 2018; pp xii + 187, 595.

 

The Hindi Canon: Intellectuals, Processes, Criticism stands out as one of the very few translations in English of contemporary criticism in Hindi, and perhaps the first published monograph in translation.1

In contrast with other modern South Asian literature, most relevantly Urdu and Bangla, Hindi literary history as such is rarely if ever the subject of translation, and although there is an important and growing body of work dealing with this topic in English, the two critical communities rarely communicate with each other.2
