Title

The Portrayal of Mass Graves in Michael Ondaatje's Anil's Ghost

Abstract

The winner of the 2018 Golden Man Booker Award, Michael Ondaatje is a Sri Lankan-born Canadian poet, essayist, novelist, editor, and filmmaker. He has been a recipient of a number of awards including the Governor General’s Award (1970, 1979, 1992, 2000 & 2007), the Booker Prize for Fiction (1992), the Giller Prize (2000), the Prix Medicis etranger (2000), Man Booker International Prize (2007), and PEN Literary Service Award (2011). “The fact of genocide is as long as humanity”- wrote Jean-Paul Sartre. It is the horrendous crime of destroying national, racial, and religious groups both culturally and biologically. At all the periods of history, genocide has inflicted great losses on humanity. Denial is the last stage of Stanton’s predictive model of genocide. This is the final stage that always follows genocide and the surest indicators of genocidal massacres. In this stage, the perpetrators of genocide dig up mass graves, burn the bodies, try to cover up the evidence and intimidate the witnesses. It is important to note that the elements of disappearance, mass graves, disposal of bodies without evidence, and intimidating the witness are the characteristics of genocide. It can be regarded as invisible genocide.Ondaatje explicitly delineates the form of invisible genocide in his fiction, Anil’s Ghost. This paper aims to highlight how the fictional mass grave in the novel, Anil’s Ghost portrays the real mass graves in Sri Lanka.

Key Words
