Feminism through the lens of spatial theory provides a new perspective and insight into various aspects of feminine space. Spatial theory highlights an awareness of status of women at many levels. Spaces are encoded differently for men and women. Literature creates a narrative space to produce new interpretation of women.In the history of any literature of the world feminine space has witnessed a change to greater degree. The evolution of feminine space in the narrative of literary text is paradoxical. Inspite of being a peripheral figure, women form the integral part of male’s world. In V. S. Naipaul’s novels women are the directional force of the narrative. It is the women who push the men into action and their forceful spatial background gives direction to male characters in their quest for destiny. This study attempts to analyse, how the feminine space in the novels of Naipaul evolved from his initial phase of writing to the latest. A distinct change that corresponds with the progression of time is noticeable.
