Abstract

Arun Joshi is the most outstanding, sensitive and thought-provoking novelist. He has taken up the themes of human behaviour which is branded with fretfulness, alienation and existentialism. While discussing about alienation in Joshi’s novels, they are mainly concerned with his own self, from the society and depression of the modern man who has been greatly frustrated by the spiritual stress, which is the characteristic of the current era. The present study centers on the source of isolation which stems from a clash between the socio-cultural and psychological forces. During the moments of crisis, modern man finds himself alienated not only from his fellow men, but also from himself.
