Feudal attitude in the short stories of Mulk Raj Anand
Author(s): Dr. Vipin Kumar
Abstract: Mulk Raj Anand, whose literary genius as a writer constantly keeps scholars and readers amused, still stands at a high-water mark not only as a successful novelist but also as a distinguished short story writer. His success as a writer takes the Indian fiction writing in English at the next level in terms of its richness of substance. His short stories are acclaimed as work of genius and his dealing with causes of the neglected stratum of society pays him great tribute. The objective of the present study is to reveal the misery of the section of society suppressed because of feudal attitude. The feudal attitude, one of prominent themes in Mulk Raj Anand’s oeuvre, has substantially been rendered beautifully anew relegating the traditional meaning of it.
