Abstract

Abstract:

This essay is a reading of a representative, if internationally little-known, work from postcolonial Bangla (Bengali) science fiction (SF): Premendra Mitra’s Ghana-da short stories (1945-88). The essay interrogates the concept of “history” by examining Mitra’s narrative structure, his use of the tall-tale form, his construction of a frame storyworld representing his readers’ reality, and his appropriation of structures of feeling.
