R.K. Narayan (1906-2001) is one of the most influential and respected Indian writers. This book is a critical study of Narayan’s novels of the common people, their aspirations and struggles, their pieties and rituals, their myths and superstitions. The fictional town of Malgudi in pre-industrial Southern India is the setting for these timeless stories. The book presents a holistic view of Malgudi and its people from multiple perspectives, such as social, cultural, religious, and economic. In Narayan’s novels, tradition and modernity, fiction and reality, and mythology and history seamlessly merge to craft the narrative. They explore the impact of caste, class, and religion on the individual and the collective, as well as the interface between the traditional and the modern, and the past and the present, highlighting the inherent pulls and tensions in society. However, even as Malgudi clings to its conservative past, it opens its doors to urban, educated, and professional men and women from the outside. The book will interest students, teachers, and scholars of literature.
