By Anjali Nerlekar

Anjali Nerlekar's Bombay Modern is an in depth analyzing of Arun Kolatkar's canonical poetic works that relocates the style of poetry to the heart of either Indian literary modernist reports and postcolonial Indian experiences. Nerlekar exhibits how a bilingual, materialist studying of Kolatkar's texts uncovers a uniquely resistant feel of the "local" that defies the monolinguistic cultural pressures of the post-1960 years and straddles the limits of English and Marathi writing.

Bombay Modern uncovers another and provincial modernism via poetry, a style that's marginal to postcolonial experiences, and during bilingual scholarship throughout English and Marathi texts, a strategy that's at the moment peripheral at most sensible to either modernist stories and postcolonial literary feedback in India. Eschewing any try to outline an overarching or common modernism, Bombay Modern delimits its sphere of analysis to "Bombay" and to the "post-1960" (the sathottari interval) in an try and research at shut variety the categorical method during which this poetry redeployed the neighborhood, the nationwide, and the foreign to create a really tangible but temporary local.
