Hybridity in Hanif Kureishi’s Fiction
AbstractStudy examines hybridity from the viewpoint of post-colonial intelligentsias who are orient geo-biographically. The narratives of Hanif Kureishi would be critically analyzed with the significant post-colonial theories of Robert Young and Homi K. Bhabha. The ones born with the colonial legacy of hybrid in the culturally constructed identities of Britain had to strive hard for social recognition. Kureishi’s biracial protagonists often felt themselves displaced amongst dominant white Western. Children born to the Asian immigrants in Britain often developed the split in their personalities. The different color of Asian skin rendered them perceptible in White Western society irrespective of their social achievements. White Britain enjoys authority over hybrid or black Britain’s. Experiences of the colonial immigrants are critically explored in the social realms of Britain as portrayed by Kureishi in his artistic writings.
