The question of subjectivity occupies the centre of the Indian literary scene today due to rapid cultural changes, driven mainly by globalisation and the increasing popularity of media and information technologies. Girish Karnad, the great Indian playwright, poet, actor, director, critic and translator addresses the problematic of subjectivity in his plays in his own distinctive way. The issue is approached in his works from diverse but mutually complementary points of view, revealing the various facets of contemporary Indian subjectivity. The present book undertakes a study of five plays of Karnad in order to explore the emergence of a composite conception of contemporary Indian subjectivity. The book also examines the nature of this subjectivity and its cultural-political implications.
