Abstract
This article has analyzed the Novel Ancient Promises (2000) written by Jaishree Misra from a psychoanalytical-feminist perspective using Lacan's theory of The Name-of-the-Father and Helene Cixous, ecriture feminine to accentuate the weakened power of the Phallogocentric discourse in the formation of the female subjects. Jaishree Misra, a present-day Indian Novelist, takes us deeper into the consciousness of her women character and addresses her qualms, predicaments, and motivations. She states her discernments as a modern woman writer who writes women. In this semi-autobiographical novel, Misra portrays Janu as a silent subject according to Lacan’s Symbolic order and later on accepts a reverse path towards self-fulfillment and actualization. Jaishree Misra employs the method of deconstructing the Patriarchal discourse and elucidates a woman’s rear journey from these patriarchal norms to liberation by rejecting something finite, structured, and meaningful according to the patriarchal system.
