Abstract in English This paper explores the problems pertaining to the formation of identity within an immigrant context on the basis of Hanif Kureishis The Buddha of Suburbia and seeks to conclude whether or not these could be considered part of a more general immigrant condition. The analysis of the novels genre and characters reveal themes that are coloured by postmodern traits of fragmentation and rootlessness, which are then discussed on a theoretical basis with a focus on the themes of identity, alienation, multiculturalism, belonging and the immigrant experience.
The conclusion holds that a lack of a sense of belonging can be considered a universal trait of the modern immigrant condition.

In this process, we want to examine the universality of the issues raised by Kureishi, and investigate how they are perceived and dealt with by different theorists working with identity. Set in a politically and ideologically turbulent period during which Britain experiences a rapid demographic shift to a multicultural society, the novel is as much about Britains struggle with its own identity as a postcolonial power as it is about the protagonists personal journey to find out who he really is.
Through Karims strikingly honest and often humorous narrative, The Buddha of Suburbia examines the immigrant condition and explores the multi-faceted theme of identity from cultural and social perspectives.
Kureishi paints colourful and incisive portraits of the immigrant experience, the struggles of class, the clash of cultures, the elitism of art and the generation gap all on the canvas of s London with its kaleidoscopic landscape of fashion, music and politics.
While the historical context is significant to the plot, we feel that this novel aptly describes the universal and timeless problems of identity and alienation that are experienced by first and second generation immigrants from non-Western backgrounds. As such, we believe that this text provides many good and relevant examples of, and a useful platform upon which to further investigate, the problems of cultural identity in a multicultural society that are no less resonant in todays increasingly globalized world.
In order to obtain a thorough and deep understanding of the novel, we have taken a literary approach, and commenced the project within the frames of Text and Sign. Through genre and character analysis, we are going to uncover several themes of the novel that seem to be of great importance and influence for 5. To grasp these themes further, it then seems relevant to move into the dimension of Subjectivity and Learning and investigate the subject and its relation to society by looking into the concepts, the history, and the relevant theories linked to these themes.
These investigations are finally going to lead us to a discussion on identity and the immigrant condition within a postmodern, multicultural society.

Muslim community in s Britain, Midnight All Day , which handles human relationships and sexual desire, and Gabriels Gift , which is a story about a fifteen-year-old. Hanif Kureishi Biography. Hanif Kureishi, Postcolonial Storyteller, p. He has essentially adopted Western traditions and theories that have influenced his own life and uses them in his writings bringing a new aspect to British literature.
Kureishis father arrived in England following the partition of India and Pakistan in and, like Karims father, he came from a wealthy family, married an English woman from the lower middle class and worked as a civil servant. His ambition to become a writer was never realised, though he did encourage his son to do so.
When Kureishi realised that he wanted to be a playwright himself, he left the suburbs of London at a young age and moved to the city. Like Karim, he worked in the theatre in various positions in order to establish himself as a playwright, until he became a novelist. Kureishi has written about his family background and his early personal encounters with racism.
Having grown up in a lower middle class Anglo-Asian family in the suburbs of London, it can. Autobiographical Context The Buddha of Suburbia is said to be a semi-autobiographical novel, and when reading it and learning about the author, some noticeable comparisons can be made. The novels plot is briefly. Hanif Kureishi, p. The Buddha was kind of autobiographical but it was revved up autobiography [ It came out of my experiences in that sense, but its not one-on-one thing where something happens and you go and write it down.
Its not like that You mix all that stuff up together and then you get a good chapter. Research Questions Which key elements of the Bildungsroman are present in The Buddha of Suburbia and what do they symbolise? What are the central themes exemplified by the experiences of Karim and Haroon? How do the conditions of postmodern society affect the way in which the individual shapes and negotiates identity?
Problem Definition To what extent do the experiences of the main characters in The Buddha of Suburbia reflect the immigrant condition in the real world, and can their experiences be considered universal today?
What bearing does the social, cultural and ethnic background of an individual have on the process of identity formation, and how does this contribute to or impede a sense of belonging? Can the conditions of The Buddha of Suburbias main characters be considered representative of the immigrant experience in a Western postmodern society, and if so, how?
Delimitations It is always compelling to go in depth with the areas handled in a project, but in order to arrive at anything useful it is necessary to delimit ourselves.
We have therefore chosen to delimit ourselves on several areas that would all have been interesting to investigate further in a larger project or perhaps in smaller more specialised projects dedicated to those. As the project took shape around the book The Buddha of Suburbia, we have chosen not to do any empirical work such as interviews, observations or experiments in the field.
Instead we have chosen to work with a fictional novel albeit conscious that this is a subjective medium. If we were to do empirical work, it would be necessary for our problem definition to have a different aim and focus where for instance we would investigate how Danish second generation immigrants experience the process of identity formation in modern Denmark.
