Abstract

This study examines the postcolonial and anti-colonial reading of representations which exist in The Glass Palace written by Indian postcolonial writer Amitav Ghosh. The study also examines Ghosh’s work according to the postcolonial theory and gives importance to the premises of main theorist in this field. The novel The Glass Palace is a saga about three generations of two closely linked families in Burma, India and Malaya from 1885 to 1956.It is a historical novel about the British colonization of Burma. This novel is more than merely a revisionary rewriting of a portion of the history of the British empire from the perspective of the colonized subaltern. The article, therefore, aims to explore the overall structure of the novel through postcolonial approach and provides examples from the novel regarding the application of some postcolonial elements such as obscurity, memory, imagination, identity, essentialism, otherness, ambivalence, nationalism, space/place, diaspora, hybridity, unbelonging,  independence…etc.

Key Words: Colonialism, Neocolonialism, Cultural and Social Implications, Colonial and Postcolonial Images, Hybrid Identities.
