Amitav Ghosh

Mondal, Anshuman A. (Anshuman Ahmed), 1972-

Presents an introduction to the fictional and non-fictional writings of one of the most celebrated and significant literary voices to have emerged from India. This book takes a thematic approach which enables analysis of the cluster of themes, ideas and issues that Ghosh has steadily built up into a substantial intellectual project. Amitav Ghosh is an authoritative critical introduction to the fictional and non-fictional writings of one of the most celebrated and significant literary voices to have emerged from India in recent decades. It is the first full-length study of Amitav Ghosh's work to be available outside India. Encompassing all of Ghosh's fictional and non-fictional writings to date, this book takes a thematic approach which enables in-depth analysis of the cluster of themes, ideas and issues that Ghosh has steadily built up into a substantial intellectual project. This project overlaps significantly with many of the key debates in postcolonial studies making this book both an introduction to Ghosh's writing and a contribution to the development of ideas on the 'postcolonial', in particular, its relation to postmodernism. Aimed at students and the general reader, this book is an ideal introduction to one of contemporary literature's most fascinating writers
