Existentialism and Transnationalism: A Critical Insight into Nadeem Aslam’s Maps for Lost Lovers
Nadeem Aslam’s Maps for Lost Lovers reflects existential crises, the life of migrant settlers in the western world and transnationalism. The present paper proposes to have a study on existentialism which reflects that an individual person is free to think and to make decisions by himself. But an individual should remember that such decisions are taken for immediate purposes. This research is about the Existentialist strain and transnationalist elements in Maps for Lost Lovers. Maps for Lost Lovers reflects these elements in the text as “She realized how it must’ve got there, such accursed practices such godlessness” (Maps for Lost Lovers, 30). The study examines the Existentialist strains and transnationalism in Nadeem Aslam’s Maps for Lost Lovers. Maps for Lost Lovers also shows the terms of transnationalism in it such as in the line “they live in a society named as Dasht-E-Tanhai (loneliness) seemingly godlessness with white society” (Maps for Lost Lovers, 11).
