V.S. Naipaul is a very complicated writer that loves to overload his writings with a tremendous amount of meaning. However, he tends to overload a small observation with too much meaning, making small things seem bigger than they seem and at times causing confusion. 'Guerrillas' was the better one of the two novels, using more literary devices. Although one had more literary devices, both novels had very similar writing styles.
This is logical fact because both novels were written by the same author. Both novels' point of view is in the first-person narration and the use of thoughts throughout the novels is strongly evident. 'Guerrillas' is written in the point of view of Jane and 'A Bend in the River' is written in the point of view of Salim. Both novels are written in the point of views of people who are careful of what they do and say. Both protagonists' loves to view things on different perspectives. This allows the author to display a wide range of thoughts and feelings for each protagonist.
Both novels are surrounded by thoughts of the protagonist. Jane's thoughts are mainly negative, criticizing others or about herself while Salim's thoughts are positive, keeping it real. Even though both novels have a first-person narration, it still keeps its originality by the protagonist itself. One novel is viewed in the eyes of a positive person while the other by a negative. This gives both novels a different feel and different perspective on the situation in each novel.
'Guerrillas' and 'A Bend in the River' also have similar themes and settings. The themes of violence, friendships/relationships, prejudice and hatred are evident in both novels. The social setting of the novels is similar even though the exact locations are not identical.
Since both novels are set in a chaotic time period where racism is evident and the community is run down and hectic, it is only fitting that the themes of violence, prejudice and hatred are similar in both novels. Both novels have rebels and rioters that contribute to the violence and it is a result of hatred and prejudice in the land. The characters are not linked to the viole
