dc.description.abstract Tahmima Anam‟s trilogy, comprising A Golden Age (2007), The Good Muslim (2011), The Bones of Grace (2016), explores the complexities of women‟s lives. Specifically, it underlines the condition of women before, during and after the Liberation War of Bangladesh. This research explores the unheard and unbearable sufferings of women in Anam‟s works. Simultaneously, it highlights the heroism and accomplishments of women in different situations and how women are treated as subalterns in society, culture, and national boundaries. Thus, the common issue of women‟s survival under the domination of patriarchy has been explained in the three chapters. This dissertation illuminates the fact that it is not easy to become a woman in a postcolonial patriarchal system and women, albeit subalterns, are indefatigable. en_US
