Abstract

Anita Desai, born in June 1937 has succeeded to establish her own space among the international reading public. She published her first novel Cry, the Peacock in 1963. She has been shortlisted three times for the Booker Prize and was awarded the Sahithya Academy Award in 1978. Anita Desai’s novels catch the bewilderment of the individual psyche confronted with the overbearing socio-cultural environment and the ever-beckoning modern promise of self-gratification and self-fulfillment. She has given a new dimension to the Indian novel in English.

Anita Desai’s works, shifting the emphasis from outer to inner reality, mark a new and mature phase in Indian English fiction. She can claim the unique distinction of giving a new dimension to Indian English fiction through her very first novel Cry, the Peacock (1963) which shifted the focus to the unexplored realm of the female psyche. Most of her novels concentrate on the feminine sensibility at war with the hostility and callousness of male-centered universe.
