Ecofeminism; A Paradigm of Women-Nature Nexus: Prospective Analysis of Anita Desai’s Cry, the Peacock
Keywords:Ecofeminism, Exploitation, Nature
Ecofeminism is an analytical approach which has been in use for some time but is still at a preliminary stage. An ecofeminist analysis would involve the combination of ecocriticism and ecofeminism into one analytical frame, where it would be imperative to interpret that the oppression of nature and women are intimately bound. The present article aims to study the exploitation confronted by the woman in Indian society in correlation with nature which is also oppressed and exploited by male dominated society. Anita Desai’s Cry, the Peacock studies such predicaments which lead the woman and nature both to astray.
