Sanjukta Dasgupta Kolkata July 16, pm.

Literary archaeology explores, excavates and unearths creative texts that were ignored, elided, marginalised or completely forgotten due to the hegemonic control of the mainstream literary turf by dominant creative personalities.

This is a fact perhaps universally acknowledged throughout the world. Sarvani Gooptu performs a brilliant feat by presenting to the interested readers of the history of Bengali literature and culture a meticulous career graph of the multi-talented litterateur, lyricist and musician Dwijendralal Roy, who had generally been regarded as an also-ran creative talent of colonial Bengal. The first few chapters inform the readers that Dwijendralal Roy was born in In Krishnanagar, Nadia, in a considerably affluent and cultured home.

His father, Dewan Kartikeya Chandra was a man of many talents; he knew several languages and was an accomplished singer and songwriter. He was a much sought after vocalist and it is on record that Vidyasagar and Michael Madhusudan Dutt among others came over to Krishnanagar to listen to him. Being nurtured in such an environment Dwijendralal became deeply immersed in practising and performing vocal music apart from composing songs.

He published his first book of songs when he was barely While in England he delved deeply into English literature and culture and published his first and only book of English poems, The Lyrics of Ind The views he expressed in the introduction to his book of poems would suggest that he was a besotted Anglophile and had internalised English culture that Franz Fanon had critiqued incisively in his book, The Wretched of the Earth.

It is, however, important to notice that Roy was just 23 years old in and he was a colonial subject, who had been granted a scholarship to study in England.

The marriage was not a happy one as his career would prove beyond doubt. Though he was appointed Deputy Magistrate in and held many other governmental posts mostly due to frequent transfers, he eventually resigned from his job, returned to Calcutta and died in , at the age of Significantly, while Roy was a Settlement Officer he went into a direct confrontation with the British administration as he reduced the unfair taxes levied on the farmers of Sujamuta, in the Burdwan estate.

Evidently, the marriage was on the rocks for irreconcilable differences. Between and , Roy published numerous satirical farces and poems that included Samaj Bibhrat and Kalki Avatar and Alekhya His historical plays with strong political content such as Rana Pratapsingha , Sohrab Rustam , Shahjahan and Chandragupta were remarkably stage-worthy and anticipated the Brechtian mode of estrangement through the political discourse. Mughal history and the history of Rajasthan inspired Roy a great deal as is evident from the projection of valour, nobility, masculine strength, patriarchal values and the emphasis on patriotism, nationalism, the glorification of the maternal nation and Hindu culture, and somewhat anti-Muslim bias.

In fact, Sravani Gooptu points out that Roy was the first Bengali writer who had used the history of Rajasthan with competence. But as a playwright, he infused into the historical play ideas, imagination and idealism. The songs that became phenomenally popular were Banga amar Janani amar, Dhana Dhaney Pushpe bhara among others.

These songs vied with the Swadesh songs of Tagore composed at around the same time. As Roy was well acquainted with English literature and was deeply influenced by it too, he may have been inspired by the 18th century English dramatists, essayists, poets and satirists ranging from Dryden, Swift, Pope, Johnson, Addison, Steele et al.

It instantly adopts the changing forms of the disturbance. It, also, is froth with a saline base. Like froth, it sparkles. It is gaiety itself. But the philosopher who gathers a handful to taste may find that the substance is scanty, and the after-taste bitter. He appropriated freely the rhythmic elements of western music replicating the prosodic patterns used in English romantic poetry. He translated English, Scottish and Irish songs.

His first volume of songs Aryagatha Part 1 was composed when he was in his high teens. Aryagatha Part 11 comprises 82 songs. Tagore had acknowledged often the pioneering contribution of Roy in terms of language and creativity. Roy chose to write a thinly disguised parody of the poem.

Moreover, DL Roy used songs in his play Ananda Biday to parody Tagore which led to violent demonstrations of outrage from Tagore aficionados. The Music of Nationhood is a meticulously well-researched book by a historian and ethnomusicologist that will be appreciated by researchers and faculty members of colonial studies and cultural studies as it showcases the contributions of Dwijendralal Roy as a colonial subject as well as a man of letters, a songwriter, a poet and a music composer par excellence.
