Approaches to Hindi Intellectual History

The Hindi Canon: Intellectuals, Processes, Criticism by Mrityunjay Tripathi, translated by Shad Naved, Delhi: Tulika Press, 2018; pp xii + 187, 595.


The Hindi Canon: Intellectuals, Processes, Criticism stands out as one of the very few translations in English of contemporary criticism in Hindi, and perhaps the first published monograph in translation.1
