Overview: The English Teacher

The English Teacher is the third book from R.K. Narayan's trilogy that started with Swami and Friends and The Bachelor of Arts. The novel starts with the life of a man who has enjoyed his bachelorhood and now has to shoulder the responsibilities of being a family man. The book completes the journey of a man that was started in the first book, and also describes the struggles leading to his maturity.

The protagonist Krishna lives alone in Malgudi while his wife Susila and daughter, Leela, are with his in-laws. He has joined as an English teacher at the same college that he attended. After a while, his family decides to move to Malgudi to live with him. Scared with his new responsibilities, Krishna goes in search of a house for his family.

During this time, Krishna comes across several situations, and the author has portrayed very well the minute characteristics of a man who has recently taken up his family's responsibilities. Whether it is meeting the wife's needs, the daughter's requirements or the family's provisions, R.K. Narayan has penned down every detail, making the readers witness Krishna's transition. Like any other man, Krishna also builds up a fondness for his family, and under certain unavoidable circumstances, he goes through some trauma.

What he goes through? How does he deal with it? How does he realise the role and love of a father? R.K. Narayan has carved the story of a simple man with such utmost charm and beauty that it keeps the reader on the hook.

R.K. Narayan was one of India's well known writers. The National Prize of the Indian Literary Academy winner was best known for his collection of short stories, Malgudi Days.
