Keywords:Dislocation, Exile, Palestine, Postcolonialism.
This research paper aims at exploring the socio-politico situation of the Palestinian-Israeli imbroglio which has been reflected in the selected novel of Susan Abulhawa. This is exploratory study and its methodology is qualitative in nature. The writer of this novel, ‘The Blue between Sky and Water’ is understood to have played as a Palestinian Subaltern spokesperson and she has emerged as one of the strongest voice of the Palestinian resistance. The selected work is studied in the context of Dislocation which is an integral aspect of Postcolonial theory. The purpose of this paper is to study the restriction imposed upon indigenous population as well as those who are put away in camps by Israelis as depicted in the selected novel. This paper is expected to open an avenue that would encourage further application of the selected postcolonial tool on other literary texts.
