 ABSTRACT

 

Ecocriticism, the literary theory which studies the relationship between literature and environment in general has its multifaceted perspectives. As a comparatively new genre of literary theory and criticism, Ecocriticism too has been explored and employed in studying several texts irrespective of age by the critics and writers. This paper aims to study Easterine Kire’s 2014 novel, When the River Sleeps from an ecocritical framework. Easterine Kire, the first Naga novelist from India has drawn a vivid portrait of the physical world of Nagaland. The protagonist of the novel, Vilie is an very ambitious hunter who sets out in search of the Sleeping river and a magical stone and the entire narrative is dominated by his voyage and achievement of the stone. Vilie’s epic journey is the amalgamation of various experiences enthused with several environmental issues. The ecocritical concepts of place, pastoral, wilderness, deep ecology etc. are very much relevant in this novel. In some characters, the eternal debate between nature and culture can be seen. Also, some ecofeminist concerns are visible in this novel.

 

Key Words: Ecocriticism, place, deep ecology, nature-culture debate and ecofeminism.
