A critical analysis of Dalit literature and its development with special reference to Yogesh Maitreya’s flowers on the grave of caste


Author(s): Dr. Anju Gurawa and Christopher Gunjan Kujur

Abstract: The Paper aims to do an analysis of the development of Dalit literature and its related movements. The Dalit writing in India not only provides a narrative of pain and exploitation but has also helped in the formation of new aesthetic values. Dalit writers and critics hold different opinion about literature as compared to the literature practised by the mainstream writers. Their exclusion from elite historiography, derogatory representation and overall subjugation demands for a radical and revolutionary form of literature. Dalit literature has developed a lot from its inception and new trends have followed the movement. The writer would talk about these changes with the help of Yogesh Maiterya’s short story collection titled, “Flowers on the Grave”.
