Between here and there: aspects of the diasporic experience in the brief wondrous life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz
MetadataVis full innførsel
Through this exploration of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao I demonstrate how Díaz' narrative conveys the immigrant experience in a true" form through fiction. As the cultural framework we encounter in the novel is a Dominican diaspora in the United States, the notion of diaspora filter into the novel in terms of the historical, cultural, aesthetic, and personal. It figures as a kind of orchestrating principle, and consequently this thesis aims to explore how a diasporic in-between position inhabited by the characters in the novel can be examined from different angles.
