Identity crisis and feminist studies by Shobha DE’s Strange Obsession


Dr. J Gilbert Mary


The paper discusses about the Indian writer Shobha De’s novel Strange Obsession, which was one of the causes of her enormous prolific writing. From many perspectives, the study analyses of the issue of Representation of India by Women Writers in English Novels. Shobha De has worked hard to develop a character who feels a feeling of transgression in a story about contemporary literature. This study also explores gender identifications and the implications that Minx, a lesbian woman has experienced as well as the topic of identity crisis is expressed. This paper examines Shobha De’s novel and presents an in-depth examination of how the characters' incorrect decision becomes the fundamental flaw for their sufferings and how the decision causes the characters to sacrifice their lives. This paper also discusses the gender equality and normalization that is taking place in the modern day.
