(p.103) Chapter Three The Biography of Literary Vernacularization
The Quotidian Revolution

Christian Lee Novetzke

Columbia University Press

Supplies the remembered biographical data and likely public memory of Chakradhar and Jnandev that help shape the context of the four chapters that follow. The chapter also argues that meaning coheres around these received biographies in a way that stabilizes their “value” in a particular kind of spiritual economy of the age. The lives of these two emblematic figures are engaged as metonymic biographies, indexes for a much broader social change.

Keywords:   Biography, spiritual capital, spiritual economy, public memory
