Emergence of novel in the late nineteenth century Colonial Sindh


The need for globalising knowledge of Victorian culture has become increasingly important factor for ‘revitalisation of the field.’ Joshi has argued that the ‘Victorian metropolis was hegemonic and defined the terms of production in the Colonial periphery, if not by direct economic power then by indirect cultural influence.’ Thus, she has analysed the impact of Victorian culture in India. However, this paper is focussed on analysis of the impact of Victorian thinking and ideas on novel writing in Nineteenth Century Sindh which received these ideas by Colonial means. It contributes to the little understanding of Victorian influence outside England. This article attempts to examine the way in which conceptualisation and visualisation of social issues dealt by Sindhi novel was significantly influenced by the Victorian novel.
