The Commonwealth, Comparative Literature and the World

Published by Gulmohar Press
1988
ISBN: ASIN B0007BK71Y
rn" 'Mais quoy, ils ne pourtent point de haut de chausses.' The bruising irony in the final line of Montaigne's penetrating analysis of cultures without--in both senses--the Western tradition remains pertinent, as is shown by Professor Hashmi in this volume... ."__Christopher Smith, NEW COMPARISON rnrn"Alamgir Hashmi's [work] is very relevant today, fresh and interesting, because it proceeds to a study and research of literature from a novel aspect but on a unifying basis.... The author has come up with new insights into literary research, a fact that deserves appreciation, and he has succeeded in justifying his approach and in applying it. Prof. A. Hashmi's book has to be considered as a contribution in the development of contemporary literary science."__J. Mucka, ASIAN AND AFRICAN STUDIESrnrn"Given the explosion of writing in English from around the world, we need to move beyond cultural nationalism toward an international and comparative approach to literature in English. I am in complete agreement with Hashmi here and consider his work in this direction to be extremely important."__Reed Way Dasenbrock, WORLD LITERATURE TODAYrnrn"Alamgir Hashmi. MY SECOND IN KENTUCKY (1981). INLAND AND OTHER POEMS (1988). Alamgir Hashmi s?est peu ࠰eu construit une r鰵tation comme po败 et sp飩aliste de la litt鲡ture du Commonwealth. Directeur de la section d'anglais de l?Universit頤?Azad Jamu et Cachemire, il a publi頵ne dizaine de recueils et en 1988, un recueil d?essais critiques intitul頔HE COMMONWEALTH, COMPARATIVE LITERATURE AND THE WORLD. THE OATH AND AMEN, son premier recueil de 1976 , 鴡it l?oeuvre d?un po败 volontiers intellectuel, et riche en sens comme en sentiments. Ici, il s?agit plut? e po譥s de la visite et de l?errance, de l?expatriation, du voyage d鬩b鲩ment entrepris ou accept頡u dernier moment, suite d?impressions des Etats-Unis; vignettes des bords de l?Ohio ou de la Wabash, de New Albany ou ?Down and Out in Malibu?. Viennent ensuite des po譥s moins ins鲩s dans un contexte g鯧raphique,tel ces ?Lines to Amir? et diverses pi裥s faisant surtout r馩rence ࠬ?Inde et au Pakistan, pi裥s souvent suivies de notes ࠬa T.S. Eliot. NEITHER THIS TIME / NOR THAT PLACE (1984) lui valut si je ne me trompe, le Prix Patras Bokhari en 1985. INLAND Hashmi s e situe au carrefour de maintes traditions, citant tant?n exergue Yeats, Pound, D.H. Lawrence et Walt Whitman, mais tant?ussi Countee Cullen et Alice Walker. lucidit鬠鬩gance de l?飲iture et maise parfaite de l?anglais, feraient d e lui un esth败 si l?on ne trouvait, au d鴯ur d?une 鶯cation ou d?une m餩tation cette pr鯣cupation proprement politique qui fait de lui un homme de notre temps, et un citoyen du monde mꭥ s?il se soucie d?abord de son pays.rnrnDans THE COMMONWEALTH, COMPARATIVE LITERATURE AND THE WORLD. il d鶥loppe deux sujets. ?A Groundnote for a Comparative and Common Study of English literature? Ce premier essai part de ?sept hypoth賥s? aux titres non exempts d?humour: rn-English is not only a ?northern? matter-cartography is more popular than jogging-the language of colour is highly invisible-how common the reader?-Eurocentricity is not the name I?d give my baby-cultural, political and moral constituents of the locale of reading taste like country soup-?Ride ten thousand daies and nights?, please Johnen d?autres termes, Hashmi pourfend avec beaucoup d?࠰ropos bon nombre de pr骵g鳠bas鳠sur les divisions raciales et appliqu鳠aux 鴵des litt鲡ires. ?Muslim Literary Imagination and the Shape of the Contemporary world.? fournit des aper絳 rapides sur Faiz, Zulficar Ghoze, ou Ahmed Ali entre cent autres 飲ivains de la p鮩nsule indienne et surtout sur ces dialogues spiriiuels, . Hashmi est un universitaire soigneux -qui corrige les coquilles ࠬa main et munit ses ouvrages de listes d?errata; cet aspect minutieux se retrouve dans son 鲵dition et on devine qu?il ne laisse apparae, au fil de ses digressions et allusions, que la partie 魥rg饠de l?iceberg de son savoir.. La lecture de ses oeuvres d鲯ute parfois le non-initi頭ais elle apporte des id饳 inattendues,originales et des connaissances nouvelles."__Michel Fabre, REVUE AFRAM (Sorbonne)rnrn rnrn
