Abstract: This paper mainly focuses onto explore the way in which Alice Munro employs certain key images to dramatize the central theme of her fiction. Munro, who creates fantastic fiction, has fabricated collection of short stories which are prominently concerned with the maturation process and the recognition of moral and social pressures which can put an impact on an individual. My introduction praises Munro for her narrative exuberance and sense of accuracy which discriminates men and women. Munro’s fictive marriages are world without end bargains and she studies not only their Nostalgias, but there’s surprising endurances to an extraordinary level. The raw material of Munro’s work comes from her own life. She never abandons Southern Ontario as a setting, many considers it the inspiration for her best work. Her admiration and fascination for her birth place contributes to the construction of her identity. Research explored the ambivalent views of sexual freedom in terms of the progress of feminism and focused on the women’s identity from the short stories written by Alice Munro.
