Anita Desai’s novel Cry, The Peacock is a commentary on the marital relations of such wives and husbands who belong to different strata of the society. Anita Desai has delved deep into the psychological depth of women like Maya. She has used images of horror like that of the albino monster to present Maya’s lacerated feelings. In several of her novels she has depicted the pitiable state of women in Indian society, and herself being a woman, she succeeds admirably in her effort. This novel is, therefore, a treatise on the condition of such women as have the misfortune of having nothing in common with their husbands.
