It’s that haunting.”—USA Today “The quality of Ms. Roy’s narration is so extraordinary—at once so morally strenuous and so imaginatively supple—that the reader remains enthralled all the way through.”—The New York Times Book Review “A novel of real ambition must invent its own language, and this one does.”—John Updike, The New Yorker “Outstanding. A glowing first novel.”—Newsweek “Splendid and stunning.”—The Washington Post Book World

Examination Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, Humboldt-University of Berlin, course: Cross-cultural representations of India, language: English, abstract: In this essay I want to show how globalization and colonialism are phenomenons which cannot be looked at separately when speaking about Indias history and present. Roys book does not only reveal the impact of globalization and colonialism on India and its people but the interconnection between these processes. I will give examples of how globalization and colonialism are linked and how that is shown in Arudhati Roys novel "The God of Small Things" (1997). This is a semi-autobiographical book which includes examples that draw the authors politial beliefs and understanding of how India has been shaped and is still shaped by globalism and colonialist policies. (Roy: "Is globalisation (sic) about the eradication of world poverty or is it a mutant variety of colonialism, remote controlled and digitally operated?" For this I will look at Indias economy, Indias role as an exotic Other and the novels own position within the global market of literature, the Indian Diaspora, examples for othering, self-othering and inbetweennes, at how and why caste and colonialist ideals still have major impacts on the construction of identity in times of globalization. I cannot give a profound analysis of Indias colonial history and position within the context of globalism, but it will provide backround information and an insight into selected issues that have shaped and still shape India and the Indian society. The major aim of this essay is to show that "Indias colonial histories cannot be ignored."
