Title

Beyond the walls: A Meditation on confinement and freedom in Emma Donoghue’s Room

Authors

Abstract

The article entitled, “Beyond the Walls: A Meditation on Confinement and Freedom in Emma Donoghue’s Room” attempts to analyse the effects of these contrasting perspectives on its characters, Jack and his ‘Ma’. Ma wants to embrace the freedom of the world but Jack loves the safety of the room. Told entirely in Jack’s voice, Room is not a horror story but a celebration of resilience and the love between a parent and child. For Jack, the room was his world. Even the lifeless objects in the room were friends for him. He had no idea about the outside world. Jack relates the great changes that happened in his life by entering into the outside world. But if the story had been told from the mother’s viewpoint then it would have been much darker, much more complex and heavy. It would have been more of a victim’s tale. The room is a hell for mother and a heaven for Jack. Like a modernist, the mother laments and shows her frustration towards the fragmentation from the outside world. But the boy, like a postmodernist, celebrates that fragmentation.
