Abstract

Abstract :- Scott stated that “For me, the British Raj is an extended metaphor [and] I don’t think a writer chooses his metaphors. They choose him.” In the Raj Quartet the metaphor of the Raj is extended into images, symbols and metaphors in the four volumes. Scott renders the history of the Raj in terms of the stories of the symbolic characters and events. These metaphors stand for various stages in the life of individuals as also of the raj – thwarted love, imprisonment, madness and death and funeral. The events that befall the individual characters have a parallelism in the events of the Raj. There is perfect amalgamation of history and story in The Quartet. Scott’s method is to elaborate historic ideas in terms of symbols and metaphors. Scott has executed his magnificent conception of the novel as an “extended metaphor” for communicating his view of life. Key Words :- Extended metaphor, Symbols, Images, History of the Raj, Conception.
