♥ Book Title : V. S. Naipaul
☯ Full Synopsis : "This major reassessment of novelist V.S. Naipaul's work argues that although Naipaul regards himself as "rootless ... without a past, without ancestors," his writing is in fact rooted in the literary and historical traditions of the Caribbean and can best be understood in the context of the larger field of postcolonial discourse. Covering in chronological order all of Naipaul's books, Selwyn R. Cudjoe charts the author's development from a position in which the tension between his Eastern and Western visions of the world created classics of world literature (A House for Mr. Biswas, The Mimic Men) to his progressive identification with "the dominant imperialist ideology and racist preoccupations of the age" (In a Free State, Guerrillas, A Bend in the River, Among the Believers). Cudjoe's analysis is grounded in contemporary literary theory, an understanding of Hinduism, and a thorough knowledge of West Indian literature and history. - Back cover."Article| Selwyn Reginald Cudjoe| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "I was eleven, no more, when the wish came to me to be a writer; and then very soon it was a settled ambition. But for the young V. S. Naipaul, there was a great distance between the wish and its fulfillment. To become a writer, he would have to find ways of understanding three very different cultures: his family's half-remembered Indian homeland, the West Indian colonial society in which he grew up, and the wholly foreign world of the English novels he read. In this essay of literary autobiography, V. S. Naipaul sifts through memories of his childhood in Trinidad, his university days in England, and his earliest attempts at writing, seeking the experiences of life and reading that shaped his imagination and his growth as a writer. He pays particular attention to the traumas of India under its various conquerors and the painful sense of dereliction and loss that shadows writers' attempts to capture the country and its people in prose. Naipaul's profound reflections on the relations between personal or historical experience and literary form, between the novel and the world, reveal how he came to discover both his voice and the subjects of his writing, and how he learned to turn sometimes to fiction, sometimes to the travel narrative, to portray them truthfully. Along the way he offers insights into the novel's prodigious development as a form for depicting and interpreting society in the nineteenth century and its diminishing capacity to do the same in the twentiethÑa task that, in his view, passed to the creative energies of the early cinema. As a child trying to read, I had felt that two worlds separated me from the books that were offered to me at school and in the libraries: the childhood world of our remembered India, and the more colonial world of our city. ... What I didn't know, even after I had written my early books of fiction ... was that those two spheres of darkness had become my subject. Fiction, working its mysteries, by indirections finding directions out, had led me to my subject. But it couldn't take me all the way. -V.S. Naipaul, from Reading & Writing"Article| Vidiadhar Surajprasad Naipaul| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Conversations with V. S. Naipaul
☯ Full Synopsis : "This collection brings together interviews from a thirty-six-year span and reveals a witty, sometimes scathing talker with a free-ranging curiosity. In early interviews, mostly given to such fellow writers and colleagues as Derek Walcott and Eric Roach, Naipul is clipped, brusque, and clearly impatient with interviewers. More recent interviews, given primarily to journalists rather than literary figures, reveal a more mellow Naipaul, often warm, passionate, and forthcoming about his private life."Article| Feroza F.

♥ Book Title : Racism And Racial Theories in V.S. Naipaul's 'Half A Life'
☯ Full Synopsis : "Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 2.7, University of Cologne (Englisches Seminar), course: Rootlessness and the self, language: English, abstract: Vidiadhar Surajprasad Naipaul was born on August, 17th 1932 in Chaguanas, a city in Trinidad and Tobago, as a descendant of a Indian immigrant to the country. Later on he lived in Port Of Spain with his family, where he attented The Queens College. Due to a scholarship, which he won, he was able to study in Oxford, England. After his studies he worked as an editor at the BBC for the "Carribbean Voices" project, and later on as an editor for various departments. His first novel was "This Mystic Masseur", a story which is later on meant sarcastical by most reviewers. With the possibility of viewing his own native origin from a wider distance, he put more and more detail in his works, which reflected happenings in post-colonial circumstances in mostly satirical ways. Naipaul begins to travel a lot in the 1960s, and processes his impressions within his novels, which are mostly fictional, but also partly autobiographic and in form of reports about his trips. The places where his stories take place are not bound to his personal origin, but to a various amount of global locations which appear to have been affected by international colonisation. His theories about post-colonial society and the struggling of the descendants in post-colonial environments were widely respected from the instant they were published, and some of the aspects his books were written about have been recognised as almost prophetical. He also investigates the social mechanisms between colonised societies and the former colonisers, which affect the people decades after the official end of superiority of the colonisers. Often neglected as a "travel reporter", his reports are far more content of academic and non-academic observations, which make his stories interesting for valuers of social sciences, and for people who just travel a lot."Article| Michael Kulüke| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : V.S. Naipaul Revisited
☯ Full Synopsis : "In this collection, Tewarie delves into 6 of Naipaul's fictional works: Miguel Street, The Mystic Masseur, The Suffrage of Elvira, A House for Mr Biswas, The Mimic Men and A Bend in the River. Naipaul's world involves 3 cultures - the Old World Hindu culture; the Creole culture of colonized Trinidad; and the emerging global culture of modern western civilisation - and the protagonists of the 6 works examined in this book are all caught, to a greater or lesser degree, in this cultural crossfire. In these novels, it is argued, Naipaul's perception of the phenomena of ethnicity and colonialism are closely linked and there is a dynamic interplay between these two that is at once described and explored in his fiction. Ethnicity, for Naipaul, can be a double edged sword - it may help one to stave off the world but it can also constitute a terrible burden. As a central component in personality, ethnic concerns often involve a strong source of spiritual restlessness and malaise and help determine the protagonists' view of the world and their attitude toward it. As a result, the protagonists often need to solve an identity crisis through a process of self-knowledge before they can re-engage the world. Haunted by the problems of marginality and exile with which the culturally displaced individual has to deal, there is always present in Naipaul's characters a triumph of the individual will over external conditions, an assertion of basic humanity, and a rejection of ethical nihilism. The ideas presented in V.S. Naipaul Revisited offer food for thought and are a welcome addition to the existing literature on Naipaul."Article| Bhoendradatt Tewarie| Statement ..."
