Literary Odysseys multitudinous perceptions of truth, authenticity and meaning


Dr. Karunakaran B Shaji

This paper is exploring the complex history in the evolution of the perception of truth through Theology, Art and Literature. It is deconstructing the radical transfor-mation in the human perception that Renaissance ushered in. The horrifying reality of the dissolution of the public spaces brought an irreversible twist to the quest of reality. With the very distrust in lan-guage that postmodernism inaugurated, the last of the edifices of the supposed authenticity disowned itself. The paper continues the analysis through the Marxian perspective. Marx had a special fascination for some of the Shakespearean plays which is subjected intense scrutiny. Marx narrows down on the insurmountable contradictions in Shakespeare. The paper concludes with a com-parative analysis of the postcolonial deconstruction of Coetze’s Foe and Robinson Crusoe
