The Silence of Marital Estrangement in Anita Desai's Fiction

"The intent of this book is to bring forth the forte of Anita Desai as a novelist concerned with psychological exploration of her intensely traumatized protagonists in their journey from the external world to the internal world of psychological broodings. All the characters of Anita Desai as depicted in this work undergo personal struggles and problems of contemporary life, particularly married life, conjugal relationships and the gradually enveloping estrangement between them-their mutual love, care and respect.

Her characters, particularly the married females run after their individuality and in this process they suffer a nagging sense of alienation, rootlessness, pessimism, dislocation of normal life, ungratifying interpersonal relationships and the ultimate distortion of the self. They want to exercise their freedom, make a choice but refuse to conform or compromise and are constantly in search of an authentic existence-- inviting intense questioning and self-debate. They seek to withdraw from the world of action and attachment. The tribulations of Maya and Monisha, Sita and Nanda Kaul and even Sarah consist in their inability to find meaningful external co-ordinates to their inner worlds. A reading of this book gives out the probable causes leading to different kinds of estrangement between the partners in matrimony.

This book will prove resourceful to all readers and scholars interested in the origin, growth and silence of estranged marital relationships in the fictional world of Anita Desai."
