Publication of Ismat Chughtai's "Das Brautkleid" translated by Christina Oesterheld
Lotos Werkstatt recently published "Das Brautkleid" by Ismat Chughtai, which was translated by Christina Oesterheld (Department of Modern South Asian Languages and Literatures) using translations by Axel Monte and Ursula Rothen-Dubs. Furthermore, she wrote an epilogue for the new text.

Ismat Chughtai (1915-1991) is considered as one of the greatest narrators of Urdu in the 20th century. Her stories offer lively milieu descriptions next to sensitive psychological studies. This volume presents a wide selection of her narrations in German translation.
