Abstract

This comparative study delves into the postmodern elements embedded within Orhan Pamuk’s ‘Snow’ and Manju Kapur’s ‘Difficult Daughters’. By employing a comparative framework, this analysis aims to elucidate the divergent and convergent manifestations of postmodernism in these literary works. Through a thematic exploration and stylistic examination, the study dissects the narrative techniques, metafictional devices, cultural contexts, and socio-political underpinnings prevalent in both novels. By scrutinizing the distinct approaches of Pamuk and Kapur towards postmodern storytelling, this research endeavors to offer nuanced insights into how these celebrated authors engage with and reinterpret postmodernism within their respective cultural landscapes.
