Anita Desai is one of the most prominent Indian novelists of India. Her writing is different from other novelists as she deals with psychological problems in her novels. She is very much interested in the interior landscapes of the mind of her characters. Most of her novels have the theme of alienation, isolation, loneliness, loss of identity and importance of communication in married life. Anita Desai beautifully picturizes the complexities of man-woman relationships in her novels. The objective of this study is to show the feministic perspective of Anita Desai’s women characters in her novels.


Keywords-  psychological problems, alienation, isolation, loneliness , loss of identity and feministic perspective
