Simultaneously, based on the incident, the novel reveals silence and submission on the part of the novelist as well. Nevertheless, the work seems stifled when dealing with women's issues; its movements are confusing, contradicting and oscillating. The characters and their author appear tense under pressure showing a disinclination to adopt a bold stance. This cramped and oscillating situation speaks of their helplessness and repressed situation.</p> Dr S. U.

Unless and until, one understands AHAM (self), one can’t attain one’s BRAHMAN (Absolute). Not to talk about sages and seers, this ‘Absolute’ is nothing but a desired destination for a common man. The literature of the world is nothing, but the literature of the man, the literature of the choice, the literature of the free will, and the literature of the self—authentic and inauthentic. It is the self that makes and mars the man. This is why ‘Self’ has been a thing of debate since the rays of cultures and civilizations fall on the pious ground of this blue planet. Seeing all this, an attempt is made to describe in brief the ‘Self’ along with its various types. Why it is called an omnipresent thing and how it is an impersonator, is the next thing. It is also in the crux of this exploration. What the various theories along with the various theorists are related to it, is also aimed to mention in this paper. What the ‘Searching for the self’ or ‘self-searching’ is, and what the existential thinkers think about the self, is the prime of the present paper. The essential thing here is to shed light on how the major novels of Thomas Hardy are about ‘Self-Searching’ along with its examining through the existential lenses.</p> Dr. Dharmendra Kumar Singh Copyright (c) 2022 2021-12-30 2021-12-30 6 5 7 17 Women in Colonial Space: A Study of Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart and Ferdinand Oyono’s Houseboy <p>Chinua Achebe and Ferdinand Oyono in their novels, <em>Things Fall Apart </em>and <em>Houseboy</em>, present women in three phases: as people who are sadly oppressed by their male counterparts, people who contribute in their subjugation by accepting the norms placed on them, and as powerful women. Many critics have focused their analysis on the oppression of women without considering the role of women in their own subjugation. Though their assumptions may appear to be right, women in these novels possess a degree of power. This study submits that, women’s suppression comes as a result of indigenous patriarchy and colonial patriarchal custom. The study has as findings that women accept some of the positions given them and even help in their suppression. The ones who try to speak out are either not heard, that is, “speaking in the belly of a beast” or considered in other lights. This study uses the Postcolonial feminist theory for its analysis. The theory is suitable for this study because it presents the forms of marginalization and exclusion of women, and the misrepresentation of their roles. &nbsp;The study concludes that women are active, but their roles are underestimated by their counterparts, and they end up accepting the position given to them.</p> Emmerencia Sih Beh Walters Ncham Yong Copyright (c) 2022 2021-12-30 2021-12-30 6 5 18 29 Magic Realism in the Works of Isabel Allende and Gabriel García and Laura Esquivel <p>To begin, this article provides a short overview of Magic Realism.
