This book studies in depth and detail of Mulk Raj Anand’s all major novels which are truly representative of his creative, artistic and literary genius. Mulk Raj Anand enjoyed his childhood in the idyllic world. Later on he came in touch with the urban atmosphere. He enjoyed most of his years of life in cities but his nostalgic past always remained in his mind. That is reflected in most of his novels. He combined in his fictional work his vision of the rural world with that of the urban world. We find in him Henry Fielding and Charles Dickens rolled into one as it were, encompassing the rural and urban conditions. But at heart, he is like Rousseau, pleading for return to the naturalness of nature, simplicity and innocence of the countryside contrasted with the stiffness and callousness of the city.
Undoubtedly, the book makes an interesting and meaningful reading. It keeps the reader thrilled by the new vision of life in to the works of Anand and offers fresh interpretations. It will certainly be very useful to the teachers, researchers and students of Indian writing in English, particularly those having keen interest in the fictional world of Mulk Raj Anand in broad perspective.
