Abstract

Patriarchy, as an ideology, assumes multiple manifestations in narratives, diminishing not only the might that lies hidden beneath the cracked echoes of feminism, but also the very elixir that keeps womanhood alive. It is here that the present paper, entitled "The Daughters of Patriarchy: Tracing Disparities in the Representation of Women in Indian Fiction in English" attempts to transpire the disparities that appear at the forefront in an artist's representation of its women, depending on the degree of his/her representation of patriarchy, as the title of the paper tends to accentuate. The paper would cogitate over the ill-effects of a phallo-centric ideology on the psyche of the concocted 'other', the daughters of patriarchy, through a cursory consideration of two novels, The God of Small Things (originally published in 1997)  and Fire on the Mountain (originally published in 1977).
