Novels of Manju Kapur: A Critical Study

Farzana S. Ali (Editor)

Novels of Manju Kapur-A Critical Study is a collection of scholarly research papers and articles, presenting an analysis of Kapur’s novels in order to assess and evaluate her place in the contemporary Indian English Fiction. Kapur shot into fame with her debut novel Difficult Daughters (1998) . The novel won for her the prestigious Commonwealth Eurasia Region Award for the best debut novel of 1999. After that she brought out A Married Woman (2002), Home (2005), The Immigrant (2008) and Custody (2011).

Manju Kapur is a post colonial writer who perceives the position of women in a patriarchal society and deals with the problems of women. She makes the woman a figure that fights against taboos, social and joint family restrictions and constraints laid by patriarchy in the tradition. Her writings reflect man–woman relationship, human desire, longing, body, gender discrimination, marginalization, rebellion and protest. The novels manifest women's struggle for emancipation from economic, political and social bondages, voicing well the sentiments of women and their self-introspections. The female protagonists of her novels protest against male domination and are not silent rebels but are bold, outspoken, determined and action oriented.

The papers in this anthology will provide new perspectives and insight on the writings of Kapur. This work will be of great help to the researches and teachers of English Literature.
