Girish Karnad: A Contemporary Playwright reveals Karnad’s contribution to contemporary Indian theatre which remains unparalleled in Indian theatre history. It brings out how Karnad has reshaped postindependence Indian theatre and has given it a new dimension. The book presents him as an avantgarde playwright who shocks the sensibility of the conventional readers by introducing the forbidden and sometimes even tabooed subjects. The plays based on myth, history and folk lore throw light on his sense of tradition with both the Eliotian terms—the “pastness of the past” and the “presence of the past”. It discusses how the latest plays such as Wedding Album, Boiled Beans on Toast and Driven Snow (still unpublished) bring forth the awesome, horrible reality of the contemporary life which compels the audience/ readers see/read them with unblinking eyes.
