Telling and Showing: “True” India in V.S. Naipaul’s Travel Writing

Zhao Sasa

The studies on “India Trilogy” mainly focused on comparing the differences of the three books in order to analyze the changes in the author’s emotion towards India, his identity and his way of narration. However, few noticed the relationship between these changes and his pursuit of “truth”. This paper aims at V.S. Naipaul’s choice of travel writing and his narrative changes from telling to showing from the perspective of “truth”, which is to explore new ways to approach “India Trilogy.”
