Title

REVERSING THE GAZING EYES A STUDY OF THE TALE OF MEDEA AND JASON THROUGH NABANEETA DEB SEN’S PLAY MEDEA

Authors

Abstract

Historically, ‘ the literature arising out of the West’s encounter with the East’ has been anything but apolitical. The very foundation of the identity of the Occident has been in relation to, rather in contrast with, the Orient – be is philosophical, social, or purely physical. During the colonial era, as Western scholars started translating classical Oriental texts, catering to the audience of the West, this political move of establishing the Western identity in opposition to the Eastern one became strengthened. And it has been a ‘luxury’ to ‘find oneself’ in a culture that is not one’s own, one that the West has delved into since the time of colonialism. But what happens when the coin is flipped and the Orient decides the make use of the Occident to find ‘herself’? In this paper, I intend to discuss how playwright Nabaneeta Deb Sen has taken a classical occidental tale – the story of Medea, the daughter of King Aeëtes of Colchis, and wife of the leader of Argonauts – Jason, who betrayed her own family to help Jason aquire the golden fleece, only to be betrayed by him, and presented it in the form of a play that has managed to capture as well as portray the very essence of Bengali middle-class life. Deb Sen’s play is iconic in that it makes use of the classical Occidental tropes in order to establish a very contemporary, very modern, and very Oriental identity
