A STUDY OF METAPHORICAL CONSTRUCTIONS IN POST-COLONIAL FICTION
The study explores Metaphorical Constructions in Post-colonial Fictions By Sidhwa and Desai that affects the female identity appears in Fasting Feasting and The Crow Eaters. Desai and Sidhwa are prominent south Asian writers of postcolonial literature. "Fasting Feasting" and "The Crow Eaters" are considered representations of numerous civilizations. As a result, the belief systems of India and Pakistan should be examined in the context of the cultural identities depicted in the two fictions written by subcontinental writers. Because the cultures of the two countries are very different, if one reads about the civilizations of both nations (India and Pakistan), one would be able to comprehend the novels much better. Desai and Sidhwa have portrayed specific cultural identities in the novels mentioned above; mainly, the authors represent and depict women through metaphorical language. As a result, the current study contends that the ethnic background (or identities) reflected in both novels cannot be generalized without knowing all cultures in Pakistan and India. This research was conducted to investigate the impact of Food on Pakistani and Indian cultures as metaphors especially concerning female representation. The novelists use metaphorical language to explore the female subordinate position in society.
