European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine,
2022, Volume 9, Issue 8, Pages 2881-2888
AbstractAnita Desai is a prominent feminist author of our time who has raised the issues of women suffering in patriarchal society and has presented their problems in a realistic manner. Although the novel ‘In Custody’ is basically about men – Deven Sharma and Nur Shahjehanabadi – and all the female characters are mostly passive or silent, the author has depicted their view point also candidly. The present paper is an attempt to analyse the psyche of the subjugated female characters of the novel and to explore their position and exploitation in male dominated society.
