The paper “Epitome of an Existential women: with reference to the select novels of Shashi Deshpande”, critically explores and analyses how the protagonists seek identity as an autonomous self with fortitude and dignity through metamorphosis and evolution, eventually probing into the themes of existentialism.

These Existential Women experiences the journey towards self-exploration by easing themselves from the tangles of their troubles and torment, they aspire and always rise triumphant, not vanquished and they emerge rejuvenated not refurbished which symbolizes the protagonist’s attempt to forge for herself a new identity laced with wisdom.
