The Inevitable Failure of Meta-narratives in 'The God of Small Things'
Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, , language: English, abstract: Postmodern eye looks at human society from the vantage-point which is much criticized by the philosophers of a wide range of different disciplines. It is said that postmodernism fails to establish its own philosophy, own solution and, thereby, postmodern urge is kept aside all human endeavor looking at it with a suspicious eye. On the other hand, the postmodernists, addressing the all-inclusive-philosophies as meta-narratives, declare that the metanarratives have lost their power to convince and, therefore, advocate little narratives. However, this paper tries to respect the postmodern urges with the study of the novel The God of Small Things.

Eliot I was born in Kushtia, Bangladesh, the land blessed with the touch of Lalan Shah, Rabindranath Tagore, Mir Mosharraf Hossain.
