Michel Foucault aims at interpreting a literary text as an expression of or reaction to the power structures of the surrounding society. He also tells us how has the event been interpreted? There are some hidden corners which are presented by New Historicism colonization facts, Feminism Theory and power role in society decisions. This all concerns with the social knowledge of society but in literature it investigates the life of author, the social rules found within a text and reflection of a work's historical situation in the text. Such type of picture is present in the work of Dr. Iqbal Afaqi, Nasir Abbas Nayyar and Prof. Atteq ullah etc.
