Description:

The paper analyzes how Amy Tan's "A Pair of Tickets" and Bharati Mukherjee's "The Management of Grief" both explore the problems of cultural identity in the context of multiculturalism. The paper conveys the confusion and identity loss of people who come from mixed cultural backgrounds.

From the Paper:

"Both Amy Tan's A Pair of Tickets and Bharati Mukherjee's The Management of Grief revolve around questions of identity in the context of multiculturalism. The main characters in both of the stories are middle-aged women who come from culturally mixed backgrounds and are thus utterly confused about their own identity. Not accidentally, the two women, a Chinese-American and an Indian- Canadian, are surprised by their authors in crucial, turning points in their lives: Jing-Mei flies for the first time to her parent's country, China where she meets, also for the first time her twin half-sisters and Shaila Bhave flies to India after having lost her husband and her young sons in a terrible plane crash."

Sample of Sources Used:

  • Mukherjee, Bharati. The Management of Grief.
  • Tan, Amy. A Pair of Tickets.
