WOMEN OF SHASHI DESHPANDE: ART AND CHARACTERIZATION

Abstract:
A psychoanalytical and critical study of the novels of Shashi Deshpande substantiates her art to be a potent and powerful symbiosis with women characters allowing a dive into hidden world of women-inner-self. To her, the art of characterization is a replica of life, society and beyond it, unmitigated by its emotion. A naturally flat and static presentation of women characters in her novels has been an exemplary mechanism to convey her symbolical and mythical messages, with keen visions and voices. Her chef d’oeuvres mirror with a wider appeal, and exceptionally articulates her bounteous ideas, attitudes and beliefs in an even livelier and dynamic way. If truth be spoken, most of her protagonists, autobiographical in nature, are similar to class, gender, location, and education seems to be reinserting a particular representation.
