Abstract
This paper deals with the manner in which Saul Bellow asserts and subverts in Herzog with the help of major women who come in the life of Herzog. The Jewish identity of Bellow thus gives him a subtle freedom to project the deep intricacies of the Jewish women characters in this work. These women characters play a major role in his journey towards maturation and imbibing in him a new understanding of the reality and meaning of life. This renders Herzog with a better healing after his traumatic divorce with Madeline after which life has seemed meaningless to him. But he realises that life is a panorama of ups and downs and victory lies in acceptance of situations of our life that we can't change. Women in his life teach him this simple reality of life.
