Literary Representations of Pandemics, Epidemics and Pestilence, Paperback / softback Book

Literary Representations of Pandemics, Epidemics and Pestilence Paperback / softback

Edited by Nishi (Brahmananda Keshab Chandra College, Kolkata, West Bengal, India) Pulugurtha

Paperback / softback


1. This volume critically engages with narratives that have dealt with pandemics/epidemics in the past and also in contemporary times to see how these texts present human life coming to terms with and trying to deal with all what pandemics/epidemics entail. 2. It ranges from Camus’ The Plague, the writings of Pandita Ramabai, Mary Shelly, to Jack London, Lawrence Wright, and Christina Sweeney Baird, among others.

The essays cover a wide spatio-temporal trajectory and make a substantial contribution to mapping the contours of the pandemic in terms of psychology, economics, society, politics and philosophy, thereby offering a variety of perspectives and disciplinarian trajectories. 3. It will be of interest to departments of English literature, social science, gender studies, cultural studies, psychology, society, politics, and philosophy across the US/UK.

General readers too will find this exciting as it covers authors from across the world.
