Abstract

This essay will illustrate how Lahiri utilizes her cultural underpinning to creatively juxtapose various elements within her short story collection, Interpreter of Maladies, in order to offer a balanced representation of her modern social group, the Indian diaspora within America. Interpreter of Maladies is used as an example of how cultural knowledge may be transmitted through literature-as-rhetoric whether or not an author is conscious of cultural influence.
