The present book ‘Indian English Drama –The Epics Revisited’ by Dr. Prafull D. Kulkarni is a critical evaluation of the Indian epic myths on the English stage. Indian English drama derives its themes from the country’s glorious past and also from its two epics – the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. A majority of the Indian English plays are based on the themes which are directly taken from or influenced by these epic myths. This book throws a spotlight on those playwrights who visit and revisit these epics for their thematic material and re-live this past through their plays in contemporary time.

    Impressive! It is unique idea to bring a book on a neglected topic of the Indian English drama. The age-old epics do have a pretty strong influence on the Indian people even in this ultra-modern age. They still sway our mentality. The Indian English dramatists have used these epics and their familiar tales to reach the inner recesses of the audience. The present book lauds these dramatists and their achievements in a highly entertaining and lucid manner. Dr. Kulkarni's scholarly attempt to highlight the dramatists' worth is quite appreciative. Any such attempt on the neglected area of Indian English Literature should be praised and encouraged. Without doubt, it is great book. Dr. APK International Book Reviewer and Drama Scholar
