Feminist Issues in Indian Literature: Feminism and Family

R.J. Kalpana (Author)
Synopsis The present book begins by delineating the boundaries and methodologies of Feminist Consciousness. It focuses on the necessity of a multiple approach to thought process that is at once empowering and transcending. With the empowering aspect of a 'raised consciousness' the author moves on to highlight the cultural oppressiveness of the state of motherhood that is unique to a woman within the confines of family. The author considers Indian women writers' treatment of these subjects with a critical acumen. The novelists discussed are: Kamala Markandaya, Anita Desai, Nayantara Sahgal and Shashi Deshpande. The book focuses on the state of Indian womanhood and the challenges faced by women in society today. It also illuminates the rich interchange between critical theory and critical practice that characterizes the current writings on literature.
