An atmosphere of India: a study of style and language in Raja Rao's novel Kanthapura
2002 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The English language has flourished in India ever since the British introduced it. Raja Rao is an Indian author who, even if he writes in English, reveals a unique Indian atmosphere. The purpose of this essay is to find out how Rao constructs the novel Kanthapura stylistically and linguistically. Kanthapura’s Indian atmosphere is a result of being written in the tradition of storytelling and Rao’s technique to ‘translate’ a Kannada dialect into English. In order to reveal an Indian sensibility Rao has actually adopted some of the Western methods of writing. Many typically Indian English features are not to be found in the novel. Apparently, Rao has experimented with the language to suit the characters of the novel. An experiment that succeeds in its attempt to reveal a unique atmosphere of India.
