Ishfaq Hussain Bhat "Use of Myth in Kanthapura: Parallelism Between Ramayana and Kanthapura" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-2 | Issue-1, December 2017, pp.239-242, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd5940.pdf

Raja Rao (1908-2006) is one of the best Indian novelists writing in English. He occupies a central position in any discussion of Indian English literature. He is the foremost of those writers whose work has placed Indo-English literature on the map of world literatures. His first and best-known novel, Kanthapura (1938) earned him an international acclaim and acceptance as one of the major novelists in Indian English literature. Kanthapura is a novel dealing with the impact of the Gandhian freedom struggle on a remote South Indian village of that name. In this novel Raja Rao uses myths and legends to enrich the texture of the novel and impart to it a rare expansiveness, elevation and dignity. The paper attempts to show parallelism between Ramayana and Kanthapura by examining Raja Rao’s artistic use of myth in the novel.
