Contemporary Women

This anthology is a compendium of essays on Contemporary Indian English and Regional Drama translated and published by Sahitya Akademi, tracing angst and hope that their characters experience in their lives. Angst or anxiety draws our attention to the origin and meaning of evil. Hope becomes meaningful in the context of anxiety, dread or despair. Angst and hope are part and parcel of human existence. If life is to be lived purposefully, it calls for an integration of these two aspects in life.

All the Dramatists have acontributed to a great extent to the genre with their different sense and sensibilities, such as - Vijay Tendulkar, Mahesh Dattani, Satish Alekar, Mahesh Elkunchwar, Girish Karnad, Sriranga, C. C. Pai, Kikkeri Narayan, Himesh Rattan, Sant Singh Sekhom, Hasmukh Baradi, Hrusikesh Panda, Arjun Deo Charan, Meera Kant, D. P. Sinha, G. C. Tongbra, T. P. Sukumaran, Manoj Mitra, P. Balachandran, K. S. Sreenath, Lakshmi Narayan, Balwant Gargi, Arun Sarma and others, exploring human predicament in its multiple dimensions. Some have been very articulate in expressing their anguish, others more metaphorical; yet all of them have given realistic expression to their thoughts and feelings in their plays.
