Dostoevsky as a man of twentieth century of his philosophical reflection besides psychological, social realm of literary world has remarkable experimental study of literature considered for ever. Similarly, JM Coetzee’s writings offer a Post-Modern engagement with a classic tragedy of imperialism and cultural subjugation the impact, in Africa and elsewhere, of an expansionist in wide arena of political, ethical, and philosophical followed subsequent discussion. This paper is an attempt to explore socio-psychological analysis of behavioural patterns in the characters through a major literary form-Romantic Realism as a key factor in this research study. Romantic realism combines elements of both romanticism and realism. The terms ‘romanticism’ and ‘realism’ sometimes seen as opposed to one another, however, it is used as romantic elements found in Realistic novels in the present study of two writers who distinguish themselves time and space. This paper is to study characters of two well-known fictional works of JM Coetzee and Fyodor Dostoyevsky. A Socio-psychological element is a common feature, even if they might share some features of their behaviour such as tendencies and temperaments. The paper will also try to shed some light in the direction of understanding psychological traits by comparative study on the realistic view of romanticism. The study explores this through the protagonists of major works of these two writers.
