About the Book


This book is aimed at studying the representation of the region in the novels of R. K. Narayan and Pannalal Patel from the point of view of postcolonial studies by highlighting the socio-cultural, political and religious dimensions in their works. The first chapter scrutinizes the postcolonial aspects in the novels of Narayan and Pannalal. The second chapter is the comparative study of Narayan and Pannalal to locate certain similarities as well as differences to analyze the common thematic and stylistic dimensions of both the novelists further logically. The final chapter concludes author’s observation and analysis of the comparative study of the representation of region in both the novelists.Read either as symbolic or realistic, the texts embody the wide range of representations of regional and national dimensions.

 I hope that this book will be of great help to the students, scholars and researchers of English literature and will even useful to those interested in comparative study of Indian Languages Literature.
