Alfred Prufrock in T S Eliot’s Poem “Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” <p>Modern poetry is marked with the spirit of revolt against humanism and romanticism. The note of pessimism is always discernible in modern poetry that expresses a feeling of frustration among the people. T S Eliot is a modern poet not merely because of the novelty of his themes and by awareness of his time but chiefly because of the new method evolved by him for poetic communication. His poem “Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” is an excellent example of modern poetry that deals with the complexities and dilemma of modern man. The present paper attempts to deal with the description of love of J Alfred Prufrock and his problems while expressing his feelings to his lady love. The paper tries to make an in-depth study of the situation faced by the protagonist who is in quest of a successful love relationship.</p> Dr. Sanjib Kumar Barman Copyright (c) 2022 Dr. Sanjib Kumar Barman Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Discovering Cartesian Dualism in the Women of the Indian Patriarchy the Great Indian Kitchen <p>Cartesian Dualism deals mainly with the double existence of man. It distinguishes the mind from the body. The women belonging to the Indian patriarchy are subject to Cartesian dualism. The Malayalam films, Sthreedhanam (1993) and The Great Indian Kitchen (2021), portrays a real picture of Indian Patriarchy. The central characters in both these films are women subjected to Cartesian dualism. They do not act according to their mind. They both try to sacrifice their own dreams and ambitions to make their married life successful. But it ends as a disaster. This research paper shows how Cartesian dualism reflected in the women of Indian patriarchy are subject of the movies made in both 20<sup>th</sup> and 21<sup>st</sup> century.</p> AfreenMehnaz Sidique Copyright (c) 2022 AfreenMehnaz Sidique Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Modernity Versus Tradition in Wole Soyinka’s The Lion and the Jewel: A Critical Analysis <p>Wole Soyinka has been recognized as one of the most talented of twentieth century playwrights.

The focus of this paper is to explain how Soyinka uses art of characterization and plot construction to investigate the Nigerian conflict between modernity and tradition.</p> Md.

Dharman’s Koogai “The Owl” <p>Subaltern narratives are born of lived experiences and folk wisdom, with a unique flavour of the soil, tempered with tears and sweat. Dharman’s narrative technique “The Owl” is unique and Ms. Vasantha Surya, the translator deftly captures the cadence and core of the mystic rendering with aplomb. The spoken register of the karisal region is earthy but can be easily followed by all but in translation, it requires footnotes and references. Cho Dharman, who has too many fish to fry and several axes to grind, tries to convey more with symbolism and Greek chorus-like authorial intrusion by using a style that is a blend of mysticism and myth. This paper aims at capturing the purpose and intent of the author.</p> Jhansi Rani B Copyright (c) 2022 Jhansi Rani B Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Draupadi’s Quest for Identity and Selfhood in Divakaruni’s “The Palace of Illusions” <p>Our ancient text plays an important role in creating a conservative image of women, which is one of the main reasons why women have been deprived of their rights from the beginning, as these ancient texts still impact our society in different ways. Writers have constantly questioned this conservative image created by these ancient texts. Rewriting and rephrasing of <em>Ramayana </em>and <em>Mahabharata </em>is the most common practice performed by many authors. These epics are transcended from one generation to the next in various forms and genres. These epics are presented in our society in various genres such as poems, folk tales, paintings, novels, and television series. Every time a writer reviews these epics, it gives a new dimension to make them relevant to contemporary times. This paper attempts to explore Draupadi’s feminist journey by examining her attempts to establish her identity as woman.</p> Shikha Saharan Copyright (c) 2022 Shikha Saharan Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0000 The Unaccounted Voice of Women in Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Purple Hibiscus <p>In our society, values of life is neither constant nor equal to all. Apart from economic conditions, the importance of women in under developing countries still suffers from blind gender disparity. Their voices are always suppressed in family as well as in society. The only solution to raise their importance is at the hand of law. The liberation of women in under developing countries is moving slow like a snail’s journey. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's <em>Purple Hibiscus </em>realistically portrays the suppressed voices of African women through the characters Beatrice Achike-the Mama, Aunty Ifeoma, and Kambili Achike. Dissent is never entertained and taken on the right spirit by any government in the world. And therefore, the emotions and the desires of African women are taken unaccounted. This perhaps is the effect of poor literacy, lack of awareness found in under developing territories of Africa. This theme of the unaccounted voice of women is to be discussed in this research paper.</p> M. Malini , Dr. S. Anitha Copyright (c) 2022 M. Malini , Dr. S. Anitha Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0000
