ETHOS AND TRANSNATIONALISM IN AMITAV GHOSH’S THE CIRCLE OF REASON
Postcolonialism is the central speculative investigation of the cultural heritage of colonialism and its consequent hegemony. It converges on the human impacts of the enslaved person’s imperialism. The neoliberal diaspora of the middle – to the late 1900s is an essential facet of the postcolonial perseverance to global integration. Diasporic literature negotiates with hot button issues like alienation, ethnocentrism, societal abductions, racism, colonialism, etc. These studies tackle compliance with its specified requirements from the trans-national void occupied neither at home nor abroad by a fluid culture. The immigrants wage a heated psychosomatic confrontation between the amenities of home and those from the modern paradigm. One of Amitav Ghosh’s novels, The Circle of Reason, holds a novel position in postcolonial diasporic life by drawing characters uprooted from their hometown and becoming immigrants elsewhere searching for their subsistence. The novel’s characters are prone to travel in general, advance back and ahead from Bangladesh to Calcutta, then from the Middle East to Kerala. The plot progresses somewhat vaguely, and the mysterious circumstances do not concede the characters to probe into their life with endurance. The novel can be denominated as an immortal annal of anxiety, ambivalence, and transition.
