Between here and there: aspects of the diasporic experience in the brief wondrous life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz
MetadataShow full item record
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.
