R.K. Narayan and the Inhabitants of Malgudi

Mohammad Ejaz Alam (Author)
Synopsis This book is about the human concerns of R.K. Narayan revealed through his humane characters traversing the mythical town Malgudi with which his name is inextricably associated. The struggle of the characters for a decent life exemplifies the perennial human struggle for transcending the mundane conditions of life. In portraying his characters Narayan brings out the hidden poetry and unrecognized pathos so often found in the ordinariness of the common man. The detached portrayal of characters is actually the orchestration of music in human life. The setting Malgudi also provides the necessary background for the creation of this music. What appears trivial and slight in the beginning is transmuted into magnificent and sublime in the end. The book, it is hoped, will add to the knowledge and scholarship of R.K. Narayan. And the research scholars as well as the serious scholars will certainly find it of immense use for further academic pursuits. The reader too will find it quite refreshing and enjoyable.
