The Woman, The Child And The Immigrant: A Study Of Chitra divakaruni’s Fictional Terrain
D.H. Lawrence in his monumental critical work Studies in Classic American Literature while writing on Melville’s Moby Dick observed pertinently that the small boat Pequod in the novel symbolized the multi-racial America in pursuit of a common dream. Native American writers who were themselves poets and playwrights have explored the various aspects of the American dream. Diasporic writing obviously has immense possibilities and potentialities to demonstrate the encounter of two rich cultures in all their diversity. One can witness the major contribution of women writers within diasporic writing. America is home to diasporic writers like Bharati Mukherjee, Jhumpa Lahiri, Anita Desai, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, AnjanaAppachanna, SaherAlam, Tanuja Desai Hidier, Bharti Kirchner, AmulyaMalladi, Chitra Divakaruni and others. Chitra Divakaruni as we have seen is preoccupied with the problems of women, of their subordination and subjugation.
