In this work, they try to analyze the Victorian literature from a feminist perspective. In many parts of the writing, they tend to give an extreme phallocentric idea. Besides, they criticize the metaphoric biological differences between male and female writers: In The Madwoman in the Attic, for example, Gilbert and Gubar structure their analysis of women 's writing around metaphors of literary paternity. ‘In patriarchal western culture," they maintain, "... the text 's author is a father, a progenitor, a procreator, an aesthetic patriarch whose pen is an instrument of generative power like his penis.’ (Showalter, 187) They support that many female writers have been constantly dealing with depression and anxieties due to these differences, asking queries such as: "If the pen is a metaphorical penis, from what organ can females generate texts?" (Gilbert and Gubar, 6 7).
Postmodernism in Urdu Fiction Post Modernism and Modernism: a host-parasite relationship Modernism and Post Modernism have been the two dominant theories in the last fifty odd years and much of the creative writings in all literature have been analyzed and reviewed against the parameters of the two said literary theories.

The Cambridge Guide to Women 's Writing in English (1999), provides an account of this critical trend rather than of Spark 's art, remarks on the opposition to "her quirky, lapidary technique", which has been sometimes interpreted negatively as frivolous, superficial, or trivial; and her "Olympian attitude" (Moseley 592), which has been deemed cold and harsh. This quite recent Guide also tells us that "in her books the issue is the freedom of her characters within the world of a godlike novelist” (Moseley 592). Norman Page’s Muriel Spark (Modern Novelists), published in 1990, deals with the themes and techniques in eighteen novels, from The Comforters (1957) to A Far Cry from Kensington (1988). This critical work examines the development of her fictional art. Alan Bold’s edited book Muriel Spark: An Odd Capacity for Vision includes nine essays with enlightening introduction by Alan Bold, which elaborates on what he means by Spark 's "odd capacity for vision" in fiction.
