Abstract

The writing back of some literary work is the idea of its being in opposition to what it is written in reply for and it usually represents the fissures and gaps current in preceding literary work. The case of Unmarriageable is pretty unique. It is said to be Pride and Prejudice set in Pakistan. As in postmodern juxtapositions, nostalgia is current however reminiscence of the previous is now not rebellious or melancholic rather, as a substitute it is cherished and celebrated. The occasion of this paradox is subtly mirrored in Unmarriageable as it portrays the nation of Pakistani girls in the starting of twenty-first century. Austen introduced the situation and concerns confronted by Victorian women. The thematic issues additionally paved a straight way out for the re-writing. The universality of the stance of canonical textual content makes it relatable as it is introduced via allusions of Pride and Prejudice in Unmarriageable. This paper examines the novels Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and Unmarriageable by Soniah Kamal in combination with one another, focusing on the similarities and differences between the two. The purpose of this study is to identify and categorize the various ways in which two distinct books are similar to one another, as well as to investigate and make sense of the intertextual similarities that exist between these two distinct books.
