SENSUALITY – A CATALYST IN THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS

Rakhi Sharma  &  Dr. Pradeep Kumar Talan

 

 

ABSTRACT

Arundhati Roy’s sensational novel, The God of Small Things, which won the Booker Prize(1997), revolves around sensuality. The whole universe appears to fulfill the role of gratification of senses. Sensuality mainly serves as a stimulus to sexuality, the carnal desire of a human being. For Roy, sensuality is an art. She employs it very skillfully and keeps it away from vulgarity. A comparison has been made between John Keats expression of sensuality vis-a-vis Roy’s expressions. The paper examines the two writers upon this vital aspect of expression meant to generate aesthetic savouring among the readers.
