Book Review on G.N.Devy's After Amnesia by Navdeep Kaur

  • Navdeep Kaur Indira Gandhi University, Meerpur (Rewari)


The book After Amnesia is an original research on the plight of bhasa criticism (criticism on language) since the beginning of 19th century when the trasitional change in the bhasa criticism was grafted with the Euro- centric criticism. The book deals with the memory disorder that made indian bhasa critcs to forget the link between pre-British bhasa tradition and modern bhasa criticism.
