Presentation, Tasks and Quiz on 'The White Tiger'


Before you appear in the quiz or respond to the tasks, view this presentation. It may help you in answering several questions.


Respond to these questions in the comment section below this post:
  • How far do you agree with the India represented in the novel The White Tiger?
  • Do you believe that Balram's story is the archetype of all stories of 'rags to riches'?
  • "Language bears within itself the necessity of its own critique, deconstructive criticism aims to show that any text inevitably undermines its own claims to have a determinate meaning, and licences the reader to produce his own meanings out of it by an activity of semantic 'freeplay' (Derrida, 1978, in Lodge, 1988, p. 108). Is it possible to do deconstructive reading of The White Tiger? How?
