Ecofeminism, Nascent Critical Approach: An Analysis of Fire on the Mountain
Keywords:Ecological, Fire on the Mountain, Ecofeminism
Understanding of the after effects of industrialization on ecological balance it is helpful to study human culture through a reunion of the theme of 'nature' as it is depicted in the works of different writers who write for nature; and thereby highlight the harmful effects of human alliance with nature. Anita Desai belongs to the genre of such writers who fits herself with the basic ideas of the environmentalists and ecologists. Fire on the Mountain publicises ecoawareness by acknowledging the landscape, by expressing human actions in animal terms, by representing to us the diverse nature of mountain biosphere and connecting them with various moods of feminist behaviour; and thus aims at achieving an integral relationship between woman and nature.
