The Harper Collins Book Of Oriya Short Stories

Kk Mohaptra & Leelawati Mohaptra



"The first Oriya short story to be published was Rebati by Fakir Mohan Senapati in 1898. It marked the emergence of a new literary form out of a long tradition of folklore and oral literature.

The expansive oral style was soon displaced by a tight narrative which addressed a literate public. To celebrate the hundredth year of the Oriya short story,

thirty-one representative stories by famous authors like Fakir Mohan Senapati, Laxmikant Mahapatra and Pratibha Ray have been brought together in this volume which will give the reader an insight into its evolution. "
