Abstract This course of lectures provides an overview of literature written in English in India. This body of work can be usefully subdivided into ‘Anglo-Indian literature’ on the one hand (i.e. English literature produces in India or against the background of experiences in India by British writers in the days of colonialism) and ‘Indo-English literature’ on the other, written in English by Indians, before and after independence. The emerging historical trajectory of colonial and postcolonial writing will then be pitted against standard accounts of English literary history.
