Avadhesh Kumar Singh; Interliterariness “Still,” And “Methodized,” Too: Literary Contactuality in India. Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa and the Middle East 1 December 2012; 32 (3): 604–610. doi: https://doi.org/10.1215/1089201X-1891597
The interrelatedness of various elements in the universe is an acknowledged phenomenon. It operates in literary discourse in equal measure as a consequence of the basic human urge for sharing one’s experience with others and thereby facilitating contactuality and interliterariness. Singh’s essay considers the issues of contactuality and interliterariness between European and Indian literary discourses with special reference to Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore (Bengali) and Suryakanta Tripath Nirala (Hindi).
