This anthology aims to document and disseminate in English translation, literary narratives on the Sundarbans composed in Bangla by authors belonging to this great riverine ecosystem. The collection foregrounds the many issues that continue to haunt marginalised communities across the world. An attempt has been made to give voice to the subaltern concerns over agency and participation, inclusion into the mainstream, individual as well as collective rights and sociopolitical and cultural recognition.

Indranil Acharya, Professor and Head, Department of English, Vidyasagar University.

Sayantan Dasgupta, Associate Professor, Department of Comparative Literature, Jadavpur University.
