Choose one main character from our readings: Mr. Kapasi, Mrs. Sen, or Eliot. In a three-page, MLA formatted essay, explain what this character feels as he/she encounters cultural difference, based on inferences you draw from specific textual clues and evidence. You may argue that this character’s perspective changes over the course of the story, but you don’t have to take that approach.
We have read two of Jhumpa Lahiri’s short stories: “Interpreter of Maladies” and “Mrs. Sen’s.” Lahiri is a master of conveying her characters’ complex emotions and thoughts without telling us directly what they are; she trusts the reader to understand the implications behind the words on the page. Sometimes her characters do not, or cannot, fully admit to themselves what they feel, especially as they grapple with people from different cultures.
