Abstract

When the art of novel writing began in India in the nineteenth century, the writers were mainly men. These men viewed the society and the condition or plight of its people through their own point of view, thus the earlier English novels written in India even by male authors express a very different social reality from those of women’s. As Meenakshi Mukherjee says: ‘Social conformity has always been more obligatory for a woman than a man, and generally a woman’s identity tends to be defined by herself as well as by others, in terms of the relationship with men – as a daughter, as a wife, and as a mother.’ Many Indian women novelists have explored female subjectivity in order to establish an identity. One that doesn’t confirms with the popular notion of the society. Their characters wanted to establish a different identity for themselves which was not bound to the traditional roles defined for them. This has led to a major change in the way society is portrayed in Indian English Novels. From a woman’s point of view, there are many changes that were made in the preset notions and hence these writers brought a revolution to the world of fiction.
