dc.abstract.en The aim of my paper is to analyze the question of melancholy and remembering in relation to love and loss. I will base my study on chosen works by two contemporary Hindi writers, Teji Grover (Tejī Grovar, b. 1955) and Udayan Vajpeyi (Udayan Vājpeyī, b. 1960). Both of them come from the same generation, and--being a part a new literary movement, Bhopal School--they represent similar approach to literature, treating it as means of all sorts of experiments (with genres, syntax, composition, narration, subject etc.). In the works of the members of the School, the author (narrator, subject) speaks most often in the first person. This change of the subject’s perspective--from third person’s objectivity to first person’s subjectivity--brings about a change in the repertoire of undertaken topics, where searching for own identity, for the lost self, and metatextuality gain the highest importance. The issues connected to the creative process can also be found in the works of these two chosen authors. There are two main motifs present in Grover’s and Vajpeyi’s writing: love (pyār) and loss (a-bhāv), closely linked with each other as well as with the writing process. By analyzing them, I will attempt to prove that, in the modern Hindi writing, melancholy is a consequence of loss, mourning and remembering/recalling, and as such becomes a productive and creative force, inducing the author (narrator, subject) to write. Literature (be it prose or poetry), or even writing itself, would be the only possible means for the subject to remember the lost object of love, to re-call him/her, but also to re-gain his/her own lost form/structure. Furthermore, my aim is to show that the subject--immersed in despair and mourning, but also inlove for/with the lost object--extends his sorrow and mourning to be able to write. Consequently, remembering the lost object, longing for it, desiring it, become possible only in separation. pl
