A Study of Marital Relations in Atwood’s the Edible Woman
Margaret Atwood has very strongly asserted her stand regarding the feminist movement and the place of a woman in the contemporary society. Women all over the world suffer similar neurotic and Psychic disturbances in a male dominated world. It is interesting to note that even a considerable similarity relates to memories of home and child, parental relationship, attitude to sex and men. Her female protagonist need to be something other, sometimes even a different form, suggests their uneasiness with definitions of self intimately ties to the conventional roles they play. Psychologists have made an in depth study of inter personal relationship of man and woman, in and outside marriage. Marital adjustment is associated with adaptability, as measured by “giving in” in arguments, not being dominating, slowness in getting angry, and quickness in getting over anger.
