'Pincher Martin': An Impressionistic piece of literature
Ms. Priya Cornelius
Impressionism, Emotional landscape, Strategic selection, Fleeting.
Sigmund Freud rightly said in his Psychoanalytical theory that a person is only able to present some percentage of what he truly is, in front of the world. The rest of his behaviour is always buried within himself and hidden from the rest of the world. When we, as literature students, sit to examine, we realize that there are many characters, both in fiction and in real life, who very well illustrate this particular theory. This theme of appearance and reality also features in Impressionistic pieces of literature. Impressionism is not only about the play of light on a particular object, it also equally emphasizes on the darkness which is made more visible when put in contrast to light. In other words, it focuses on what a character wants to show and what he wants to hide from the world. The research paper is based on one of the extremely famous novels of William Golding, namely, Pincher Martin, and seeks to highlight the artistic treatment given by Golding to it and in this way, painting it from an Impressionistic point of view.
