Abstract

Abstract: Cross-class relationship is a hushed up topic in the milieu of English Country Houses being the symbols of aristocracy. However, novelists have explored the theme of illicit love affairs in their Country House fiction. The present paper engages with the against-the-grain relationship, portrayed in Ian McEwan’s novel Atonement. The cross-class relationship between Cecilia, the daughter of the Country House of the Tallis and Robbie, the son of the charlady of the house is the focus of the paper. The paper seeks to explore the unusual ending of the novel that hints at a novel-within-novel which provides a happy ending to the star-crossed lovers.

Key Words
