Paperback. 28 pages. Dimensions: 8.2in. x 5.3in. x 0.1in.Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1, 3, University of Wuppertal, language: English, abstract: 1. Introduction While reading the title of Rushdies short story cycle East, West a very important question arises in the readers mind: does Rushdie use the comma in between the title to show the binary division of the Orient and Occident or does he want to make a bridge between East and West (Homeless Is Where the Art Is 162) However, after in depth research on this book, it becomes clear that Rushdie goes even further than this bridging device. He not only tries to connect or mediate both the East and West, but as a traveller and migrant himself, he pokes fun at the traditional notions of Orient and Occident, employing a vast range of styles, genres, structures and techniques, finally deconstructing the binary division between East and West. In doing so, he subverts the readers traditional assumptions about the Orient and Occident and clarifies that, in todays reality; the East and West cannot be described in such a simplistic way anymore. In Imaginary Homelands, Rushdie writes that literature is, of all the arts, the one best suited to challenging absolutes of all kinds (Beck: 356) this is precisely what happens in his short story cycle East, West. Nothing is sacred any longer, hence most of the stories in East, West can be regarded as examinations to provoke and deconstruct the inviolable of Eastern and Western culture (Beck 360). To summarise, Rushdie mocks absolutist concepts of the oriental and occidental systems. By criticizing and deconstructing traditional notions he points out that, within the global village, the East and West are closely interrelated and cannot be regarded as opposites. Rushdie goes far beyond the familiar row about the binary division of the Orient and Occident. Although the short stories in East, West on the one hand embrace this deconstructive design and This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
