Abstract
Arun Joshi is one of the very few Indian novelists in English who has successfully revealed subtleties and complexities of contemporary Indian life. He has produced very compelling work of fiction. This paper aims at delineating the predicament of modern man in Arun Joshi’s novels The Foreigner (1968), The Strange Case of Billy Biswas (1971), The Apprentice (1974), and The Last Labyrinth (1981) Through his works, Joshi has tried to project the crisis of the urbanized and highly industrialized modern civilization with its dehumanizing impact on the individual. Arun Joshi had been greatly influenced by existentialist writers like Albert Camus, Sartre, and Kierkegaard. Being a great artist of psychological insight, Joshi delves deep into the inner recesses of human psyche. Arun Joshi gave a new direction and dimension to the Indian English novel. His novels delineate the spiritual agony of his lonely questers. Life’s meaning, according to Joshi, lies not in the glossy surfaces of pretensions but in the dark mossy labyrinths of the soul.
