“The Politics of Race, Culture and Gender in Three South Asian Novels: The Grass is Singing, The Lying Days and Disgrace” is a study of the themes of ambivalence, displacement and identity crisis that take place in the three stages of enunciations, according to the theory demonstrated by Homi Bhabha. Under the light of this theory, the thesis focuses on the characters of Doris Lessing‟s The Grass is Singing, Nadine Gordimer‟s The Lying Days and J.M Coetzee‟s Disgrace, who are striving for a sense of self after years of relegation, subjugation and oppression and how they are able to find a voice to for themselves through hybridity.
