Front Cover

0 Reviews
The Present Book Is A Thorough Critical Analysis Of Shashi Deshpande S Works And Has Been Prepared Keeping In Mind The Requirements Of Students In Indian Universities And Colleges. While Choosing The Critical Essays, The Broad-Based Study On The Author Has Been Given Due Significance In This Volume. This Book May Also Provide A Useful Insight To The Foreign Readers As The Essays Are Written By The Indian Experts Who Understand And Live Within The Socio-Cultural Context Of India. However, The Feelings As Portrayed By The Novelist Is Universal, Placed In The Situation, The Same Would Be The Predicament Whether Male Or Female As The Writer Universalizes Certain Basic Emotions Irrespective Of National Character. It Is Fervently Hoped That This Book Would Stimulate Further Research Into The Domain Of Indian Women Writers Works To Focus Certain Aspects Hitherto Unexplored.
