Shashi Deshpande: A Feminist Study of Her Fiction

Mukta Atrey (Author) Viney Kirpal (Author)
Deshpande, is easily among the most important and versatile Indian English women writers since the 1980s. Her novels and short stories explore the psyche of the educated middle class Indian woman. With rare sensitivity and depth, she portrays the dilemma of the Indian woman trapped between her own aspirations as an individual and the forces of patriarchy which confine her. Deshpande’s fiction especially concentrates on the domestic situation and the man-woman relationship within marriage. 

This book, which is a full-length feminist study of Deshpandes fiction, provides a culture-specific reading of her themes and techniques.
