Virginia Lieu April 14, 2009 1. Alfonso-Forero, Ann M. "Immigrant Motherhood and Transnationality in Jhumpa Lahiri's Fiction." Literature Compass 4 (2007): 851-61. Wiley Interscience . 29 Mar. 2007. Literature Compass. 10 Apr. 2009 <http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/117994427/abstract>. This article discusses how Jhumpa Lahiri’s female characters in postcolonial societies do not fit into traditional gender roles. The immigrant mother can preserve Indian traditions but also allow for privileges of American citizenship. This reading of Lahiri’s story allows for female emancipation in the context of certain national cultures and also of forming individual personalities in America. Although it is hard, the immigrant mother must persevere and maintain her native culture and values for her children while still adapting to a new environment. One can use this to explain the roles that immigrant women must play and how it differs to that of women in their native countries. 2. Falicov, Celia J.
