Planting seeds in Kamala Markandaya's Nectar in a Sieve

Auteur :
ZELENY, B.

Description :
South Asian novelist Kamala Markandaya's Nectar in a Sieve is set in a rural Indian village where the female protagonist resists and then is reconciled to living in a village under the dominance of an expanding tannery. A. uses literary and feminist theories to interpret the woman/land experience in Nectar in a Sieve. The novel suggests that conservative-national Indian women who resist modernization are necessary to the maintenance of order in a chaotic social and economic milieu. - (SLD)
