The art of fictional technique in the novels of Arun Joshi
Arun Joshi is regarded as one of the finest novelists of India. He basically lays stress on the problems of modern world. His fictions seek the importance of the individual in this complicated world. His art of fictional technique is very unique and strange which gives the trace and the taste of reality through his fictions. Arun Joshi’s fictional technique is guided by several factors of his development as a writer. He has acquired it from the study of his favourite authors. He has borrowed it from the American and Continent writers and has fused it with the Indian concept of the story mixed not only with myth and folklore but also with the device of a story within a story coming down to us from the puranic traditions. To R. K Dhawan, O.P. Bhatnagar, V. Gopal Reddy and others Arun Joshi’s works are signs of his mature genius, skilled narrative style and profound vision of life. Arun Joshi has paid great attention to the three important parts of the narrative such as plot, characterisation and the narrative point of view. He has taken recourse to the various devices in forgoing the technique of his fiction.
