The Making of Modern Hindi

A study on the politics of making Hindi modern in colonial North India, focusing on the figure of Mahavir Prasad Dwivedi (1864-1938), whose unprecedented multi-media literary campaign as editor of a prominent journal paved the way for Hindi's progress. The work casts new light on Dwivedi as an innovative and dynamic arbiter of literary modernity, while also considering the tensions between the editor and others in his realm of influence.
