Modern men and women live in a world of signs. A growing awareness of this situation has involved modern man to understand reality in the form of structures. As a result, the ways of thinking and methods of study involving the disciplines called ‘structuralism’ and ‘semiotics’ have become central to an understanding of that reality. This paper analyses both thematic structure and Struturalistic structure in Upamanyu Chatterjee’s novel Way to Go.
Keywords ‘structuralism’ and ‘semiotics, speaker and listener, codifier and decodifier, sign, signifier and signified, thematic structure and struturalist structure.
