JOURNAL OF THE ODISHA ASSOCIATION FOR ENGLISH STUDIES, 9-I –
PUBLICATIONS ON SALMAN RUSHDIE AND EDGAR ALLAN POE/CARLOS FUENTES

Just published is Volume 9, Issue I (2019) of the excellent JOURNAL OF THE ODISHA ASSOCIATION FOR ENGLISH STUDIES, edited ably as ever from Baleswar (Odisha, India) by Dr Santwana Haldar.

Included in this number are, among a wealth of material, articles on Amitav Ghosh, ‘The Hungry Tide’ (Somdatta Mandal), Rabindranath Tagore (Jaydeep Sarangi on ‘The Home and the World’; Asish Kumar Manna on ‘Gitanjali’), Dalit women’s writing (Nadjia Boussebha and Fewzia Bedjaoui), Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Bharati Mukherjee (Wafa Berkat), Odiya women’s short stories (Subrata Debangana), Jhumpa Lahiri (Subhasmita Nanda),, and the teaching of English in Odisha (Subash Chandra Patra; Satyashree Mohanty). Prasanta Kumar Panda reviews Arundhati Roy’s novel ‘The Ministry of Utmost Happiness’ and Santwana Haldar reviews ‘Milkman’, the 2018 Booker-winning novel by Anna Burns. There is also creative writing, including an Odisha-to-English translated story, ‘The Sacred Banyan’ by Bamacharan Mitra.

This should be a fine number of the journal.

My own contributions to this issue are:
