Comparative literature is the study of “literature without boundaries.” Comparative literature discovers the transformation of literary genres and texts. This literature explores the connections between literature and history Comparative literature emerged in the 19th century. It began as “Literature Compare” in 1860 in Germany. Comparative literature got its recognition as a study in 1897.Mathew Arnold first used the term “Comparative literature for the first time in English.”Comparative studies are investigations to analyze the quantitative and qualitative methods, a phenomenon, and or facts among different areas, subjects, and objects to detect similarities and differences. In a comparative study of the literature, we compare every aspect of the works written by the writers whose works we are comparing. Psychoanalysis is a theory that talks about the pent-upor the emotions, and memories that a person hides, it talks about the frustration that a person has and is keeping inside him or her and it affects the mind of the person, the psyche of the person. Freud once encountered some one and that the person was going through some physical problem but it was exactly the physical problem it was the trauma that the person was facing, that was hidden inside the mind of that person, but it was not in the conscious mind. Through this, Freud got to know about the unconscious mind. Some of the writers like D. H. Lawrence and Anita Desai have also used this theory in their works. Modernism in literature was a literary movement that focused on contemporary elements.
