The book is an attempt to critically analyse and evaluate the diverse domains of Jayanta Mahapatra’s works. A man becomes a saint by conquering the senses. Jayanta Mahapatra attains sainthood in writing sublime lines. There is an aesthetic dialectic between the beautiful and the painful, between joy of living and the sad threats in daily mundane matters. Losing one’s identity metaphorically, is much like death. Land and sociological identity play a important role in a committed writer’s mind. Alienation plays a vital role in the literary scenario with the conflict between self and the world consciousness in the works of Jayanta Mahapatra.This edited volume records some of the unearthed terrains of Mahapatra’s creative corpus.
