The Theme Of Dislocation In The Glass Palace  And The Hungry Tide

K.Saranya and M.Thamizhmani

Abstract: Amitav Ghosh shows a keen interest in the reconstruction of the past. Many of his narratives turn towards historical subjects, bringing out the past in the proper perspective, a kind of global perspective. In Ghosh’s writings history and anthropology blend together perfectly. He does not shy away from commenting on politics, wars, economy, and other worldly affairs. His protagonists face a Multi-cultural Society and exhibit a deep awareness of the surrounding them. While portraying the theme of cultural dilemmas and dislocation of the migrants, Ghosh did not remain confined to the dislocations of migrants in foreign lands alone.
