History-Fiction Interface and the Civilizational Clash in Amitav Ghosh’s In An Antique Land
Bibin Das Y, Dr.M.Mahesh
Abstract
Each journey signifies endless connotations in literature. Kafka’s celebrated fiction The Castle is the story of K., the unwanted land surveyor who is never to be admitted to the Castle nor accepted in the village, and he seems to have set on a confusing journey on his side. The character of Yezad in Mistry’s The Family Matters walks into a fire temple, only to learn that the relevance of this sacred temple is onthe verge of extinction. Conrad’s mind capturing fiction The Shadow-Line depicts the perilsomevoy age of a young captain as a process; The protagonist of The Reluctant Fundamentalist makes a journey or areturn journey to a place from where he is unlikely to move further. Tridib, Amitav Ghosh’s mind capturing character in The Shadow Lines, makes a journey, crosses the border, but never returns.
