SOCIO-POLITICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL FOOTPRINTS IN JOHN UPDIKE’S RABBIT, RUN
The author's inner voice is novels. In comparison, John Updike's widely investigated novel Rabbit, Run has testified to a lot of thematic studies such as the "feminist aspect," "historical study," "comic nature," "Gregory struggle," etc. But this paper aims to investigate the hidden fields of concepts and hypotheses in Updike's novel. This study aims to look at Updike and his ideas regarding my viewpoint on the human mind’s workings, lifestyle, and social organization. It is an immoderate trip to investigate Updike's mind, which is deeply conscious of global issues. This paper focuses on topics related to the individual, family beliefs, and the effect of the individual on a culture that changes politics. It also illustrates Updike's resistance to robust Gregorian conventions that make the life of a citizen frivolous. Updike is enormously patriotic yet also cynical. He still works on the same plane in his quest and goal to render an individual and the country prosperous. This study seeks to describe the contrasting perspectives of John Updike's protagonist on the treatment of scenarios. It may also be used as a representation of the events of the citizens of America, their lifestyle, prosperity, and their change of mind.
