Anthropomorphism employed in retelling of ramayana in amish tripathi’s sita: Warrior of mithila


Archana Surendran

Amish Tripathi’s Sita: Warrior of Mithila is retelling of Ramayana from the perspective of Sita. The amalgamation of fantasy fiction, Hindu mythic tradition and ancient Indian history in perfect equilibrium have given a new dimension in representing ancient Indian tradition by the author. Sita: Warrior of Mithila is an attempt to analyse the dichotomy between divinity and historicity where the former is a matter concerned with faith and latter is of existence. This dichotomy is exposed with the technique of Anthropomorphism which is effectively employed in retelling the Indian epic Ramayana and thus he eliminated the possibility of mysticism in reasoning. The author experimented with multi linear narrative technique (hyperlink) and converts the theomorphic aspect of myth by assigning human attributes to the divine. The blend of religious symbolism and his philosophical ideas (which is derived from ancient texts) along with his concerns about contemporary India is expressed through the advanced quality of storytelling.
