Abstract [en]

This essay delas with the effect of emotions on Ondaatje's characters.  By using Sara Ahmed's theory that they way we react and act is shaped by our contact with other people and that "emotions shape the very surfaces of bodies" (Ahmed 4) and that this in turn make us either approach or reject people, Ondaatje's main characters are analysed.  It is their meeting with certain people that governs their feelings and explains the way they act.
