English 2230 WB: World Literature
Essay 1 (Lahiri, The Namesake)
Select one of the two topics below and write a three, full-page essay. Support your discussion with at least two quotations (or paraphrase) from the primary source (novel itself). NO material from secondary sources may be used for this assignment!
1. In the second part of the novel, Lahiri describes Gogol/Nikhil as a successful architect working for a midtown firm in New York City. He prefers “the place his parents do not know well, whose beauty they are blind to … and [also] fear.” Examine the differences between Gogol and his parents. Are they a reflection of his cultural assimilation? A reaction against his cultural hybridity? Something else?
2. Both Gogol and Sonia, his sister, are examples of hybrid identities (American by birth/Indian by heritage). Considering that American culture encourages individualism and freedom, while Indian culture – being rooted in tradition – stresses conformity, can Gogol and Sonia reconcile the two? Is this even possible? (You can make brief reference to your own hybrid experience, if you relate, but the focus must remain on the novel and characters).
Due date: November 5th (midnight).
Submit in word file, not pdf.
