Abstract:

This paper is an attempt to explore materialism in Aravind Adiga’s ‘Last Man in Tower’. Marxism offers a sociological context and interpretation of cultural forms. It finds all cultural forms within socio-economic situations prevailing in a specific society. ‘Base and Superstructure’ is a one of the significant concepts associated with Marxist thought. For Marxism, economy is the base and superstructure rests upon it. Marxism is a materialistic philosophy which is against the idealist philosophy that believes in the existence of a spiritual world. Materialism in AravindAdiga’s ‘Last Man in Tower’ tries to see the sights how the desire to become rich makes people dehumanized in the age of globalization. Adiga in the novel reveals the crimes associated with real estate which is one of the booming industries in the age of globalization.

Key Words: Materialism, Marxism, Base and Superstructure, Globalization, Real Estate
