Abstract

Words in themselves are very powerful. A word accompanied by its visual counterpart becomes a powerful image that gets easily ingrained in the minds of masses. An ideology propagated through these images gets a wider acceptance- an acceptance which is very difficult to be over ruled by any theories or discussions. This complicated structure becomes more complicated when politics of an individual or of a group creeps into it. This paper is an attempt to reveal the politics involved in creation of the identity of a ‘geisha’ in the novel Memoirs of a Geisha (1997) by Arthur Golden and its film adaptation of the same title directed by Rob Marshall in 2005.

Keywords: Identity, subjugation, male gaze, fragmentation, objectification.
