Reminiscence surfaces diasporic consciousness: A comparative analysis of indigenous and overseas episodes of Zulfikar Ghose’s “This Landscape, These People”


A Fredrick Ruban

There is no necessity for the interrogation: ‘Does Zulfikar Ghose portray diasporic consciousness through his poems?’, because his poetic works substantiate the theme of diasporic consciousness and the poem, “This Landscape, These People” serves as a paradigm. “This Landscape, These People” is enriched with the theme of diasporic consciousness and, the research paper strives to accumulate the images representing the exiled position of the poet. Zulfikar Ghose, a living Pakistani American writer, is renowned for landscape poetry as well as for magical realism writing. In “This Landscape, these People”, he explicates and distinguishes the void independence that he gets in his romantic age in the alien land and the solace that he experiences in his indigenous country. The cultural difference and behavioural changes of the indigenous people and the foreign people are disclosed through his succinct language and style of composition. Furthermore, the paper traces every single reminisced image which depicts the pleasant as well as the unpleasant experiences of Zulfikar Ghose in the motherland and the exile land.
