The search for identity in The Buddha of Suburbia
2002 (Engelska)Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
Abstract [en]

This is an essay about the second generation immigrant Karim Amir’s struggle to find his social and inner identity in the xenophobic and class conscious environment of England. Karim’s quest to find his true identity is especially made difficult since his father Haroon is going through a identity crisis himself. In fact, Haroon is changing his entire appearance, from trying to blend in to the British mass, to playing the role of the Buddha of Suburbia, a spiritual counsellor from India. This way of acting in order to gain social acceptance, or to find an inner self, is also evident in the behaviour of other characters, such as Karim himself, who eventually finds relief on stage where he is finally partly accepted in society. Lastly, the famous British class consciousness also influences the different characters’ behaviour. More or less everything that is said and done origins in an awareness about social class and rank, and it can be argued that it is basically the class society that forces Haroon and Karim to act the way they do.
