An area of vast depth like literature is being tried to be bound by the laws and theories of modern, post-modern and post-colonial age. It is similar to trying securing the Sea within a tumbler. The idea of various perspectives in literature ran through my mind while listening to an international seminar on translation and gender with reference to perspectives and theories of Sherry Simon and Gayatri Spivak. The question that aroused in my mind was, "can a genre like translation be confined to gender"? It was at the same time that I thought of the confinement literature has, in terms of various terminologies that the academic world has assigned to it as Romantic literature, Victorian literature, War literature, postcolonial literature and so on.
