Contemporary relevance and socio-cultural significance in the novels of Arun Joshi


Dr. Barkha

Arun Joshi’s fiction conforms to Conrad’s conception of the novel. Joshi recognizes a reality beyond the mere phenomenal world, a reality which the artist could imagine and capture by giving a consistent form to the shapeless facts of human existence. The source of most of Joshi’s novel is actual experience. Joshi does not write fiction according to a formula, rather he grapples with the moments of acute situations in human life. Arun Josh’s novels demonstrate the kind of society in which the characters live and pursue their ambition. The narratives are punctuated with words like “sham”, “bogus”, “fake” and other similar words.
