The self and society: A struggle of woman characters in the booker prize-winning novels of Jhabvala, Roy, and Desai


Vijay D Bhange

The world of women is now seen with new perspective and completely with a new angle. In a male-dominated society, women have always been ignored and treated as subordinate. The way to these suppressed voices was given by the Indian Women Writers, especially of the last few decades. These women writers took ‘her’ away from the so-called image of ‘a silent sufferer’ or a puppet in the hands of man. They touched those areas of women’s life which were never a part of earlier Indian English Literature. An attempt is made in this paper to study this change in the writings of Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, Arundhati Roy and Kiran Desai with special reference to their Booker Prize winning novels.
