    Book details


Man's perception of Nature, in the annals of Western humanism, has been diverse, complex, and overall, disparaging. In the cultural province of modern man, Nature has been devoiced as a comatose 'other,' suppressed as a defenseless woman, and confronted as a bestial adversary. Focusing on such demeaning linguistic/cultural constructs of Nature and woman, this study systematically analyses the intricate mechanism behind their 'otherisation' from ecocritical and ecofeminist perspectives. Distinct in his portrayal of man's otherisation of Nature and woman and its dismantling effects on him, Joseph Conrad remains the befitting author for this study. In conclusion, the book subverts this long cherished supremacy of man by unravelling how Conrad, very tactfully, demolishes this ego of the colonial master, in particular, and man, in general.
