ABSTRACT:
Bharati Mukherjee has been referred to as the “grande dame of diasporic Indian literature” (Edwards, Conversations with Bharati Mukherjee, 2009). She is one of the most celebrated writers of the Asian immigrants experience in America. Mukherjee’s work explores the theme of expatriation, immigration and transformation. Her works focus on the dislocated self, which desires to search for home and identity. Diasporic dream, figures prominently in all the fictions of Bharati Mukherjee. The present paper attempts to investigate the complexity of diasporic themes in selected novels of Bharati Mukherjee.
KEYWORDS:
Diaspora, expatriate, identity, alienation, nostalgia.
