Consciousness of time, history and myth decenter the narratives of Basti and The Sleepwalkers to create modernist texts that resist neat closures. Discuss
Author(s): Nida Ahmed
Abstract: The novels that are to be talked about in this paper further are texts by writers who chose to write about Partition much later experiencing it firsthand. Intizar Husain’s novel, Basti and Joginder Paul’s Sleepwalkers are texts that portray the affect that partition caused deeply on the psychologies of the survivors and also giving us an account of the repercussions that followed.
