Anita Desai is an Indian English Novelist, whose "cry, the peacock "is the Tale of a neurotic woman and her unfulfilling relationship with her unsympathetic and insensitive husband. Maya has been married to Gautama , since the last four years, and , as a lonely victim of Neurosis , lives a life of perpetual emotional strain--Maya shows exaggerated emotional response to seemingly mundane incidents in her environment. Gautama is a hard--headed and practical Lawyer , who is too busy with his practise, to pay attention to his wife's neurotic ramblings.The Novel ends witjh Maya's Neurosis developing into full --blown madness , under the influence of which she throws Gautama off the parapet , akin to the peacock who kills it's partner after mating--The Novel is a brilliant study of the Abnormal Psychology of it 's Neurotic central character.
