READ VERY CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND THE QUESTION
Please write one single essay only in which you respond to one or more of the below. Be certain to quote from the novel in making your argument.
Consider the symbolism and meaning in the novel of the various snakes (literal and metaphorical, like the tornado). In what way does the novel figure the snake goddess, Manasa Devi, and her various natural, mythical, and metaphorical incarnations as a conduit between the human and the natural world? In what manner are these various natural, mythical, and metaphorical snakes trying to reach out to the human in order to reconnect it with nature and the environment?
Consider the various implications of the novel’s repeating of the gun merchant’s seventeenth-century story of travel and drama to the current-day story of migrants such as Rafi and Tipu? In what ways does Cinta try to help Deen make sense of this repetition as a meaningful pattern in history that helps to connect us both with our past and with our possible futures?
Consider Cinta’s explanation of our modern climate-change denial and obliviousness, and of our addiction to a consumerist world of pleasure and ease, to the demonic possession of the individual’s will in earlier periods of human history. How might the novel be read as a kind of prophetic warning that we need to awaken out of our passivity and complacency and address the global crisis presented by rapid climate change, which is affecting many areas of our lives through issues such as immigration, extreme weather events, fight for natural and economic resources, species die-offs, etc.?
Consider the novel as an effort to connect modern scientific and materialist understanding of the world with historical mythical and spiritual understanding of the world. What role does the relationship between Cinta and Deen play in this argumentative theme of the novel? You might also want to consider Cinta’s multifarious understanding of the world (through the lenses of science, history, myth, religion, etc.) as an effort to help us as humans to feel at home in a fast-changing modern world that so often seems hostile to our instinct and effort to feel at home in our environment?
