Abstract

 

The paper discusses Naipaulís dealing with the psychology of marginalization of characters in diasporic location. They are described as fragile and powerless, trapped in the political atmosphere associated with the transfer of power at the advent of decolonization. The idea of rootlessness is one of Naipaulís common themes in his writings. The negative aspect of the idea of rootlessness dominates in his writings. Contrary to the charactersí expectation to satisfy their desire for freedom in foreign countries, their freedom is denied because of the political condition. Their sense of imprisonment is also depicted spatially. For instance, their living space is often fortress guarded from the indigenous population. Furthermore, such spatial depiction generates an atmosphere of separation with the expatriate characters removed from the indigenous population, reflecting Naipaulís pessimism about cultural interaction in the postcolonial era.

 

Keywords: Diaspora, Exile, Decolonization, Identity crisis and Subaltern.
