V.S. Naipaul is one of the most celebrated names in English fiction today. In his fiction, Naipaul presents a subtle and sensitive account of the poignant experiences of the colonized people. On the other hand, his commitment to truth makes him conscious and critical of the shortcomings of traditional cultures as well. This, added to his pessimist vision of the world, makes him a highly controversial writer. The present study gives a comprehensive account of the major works of Naipaul by enquiring into the postcolonial themes of alienation, mimicry, search for an authentic selfhood, power and freedom that emerge from their reading. The study provides fresh insights by raising questions about Naipaul?s treatment of Women and African characters in his fiction.
