Abstract

There are women who fight through their lives all alone, who have to face the obstacles that life has to offer them without anyone by their side, by raising their heads in front of the society unwilling to bow down before them. The character Hagar, created by Margaret Laurence in her work The Stone Angel is such a person who does not wish to bow down before the male dominated society. Set in a fictitious town, Manawaka, The Stone Angel is a journey through the life and the mind of Hagar. The main objective is to analyze the family relationships, marital life and the downfall of Hagar as a result of her pride. The paper also observes the traits of new woman in the lead character. Feminist criticism has the major object or aim of exposing the mechanism of patriarchy
