    Abstract:
    With the current global situation ensuring that the spiralling price of oil has once again returned to the headlines, Oil Fictions: World Literature and Our Contemporary Petrosphere presents a timely analysis of literary and cultural responses to the petroleum phenomenon. Indeed, the discovery and exploitation of oil and natural gas reserves have had a profound impact not solely on the economies and societies of the relevant countries over the last century, but also on their literary and cultural production. With the rising scholarly interest in environmental humanities, ecocriticism, and the emerging field of energy humanities, this collection—expertly edited by Stacey Balkan and Swaralipi Nandi—brings together a range of contributions covering a breadth of literary styles, geographies, and approaches.
