Title: Jhumpa Lahiri, the Interpreter of the New Indian Diaspora
Authors: Monaco, Angelo

Abstract: Published in 1999, at the turn of a new century and on the threshold of the third millennium, Jhumpa Lahiri’s Interpreter of Maladies (winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, among many other awards) is a collection of stories charting the new Indian diaspora, in the aftermath of the 1965 reformation of the American immigration policy. This paper proposes a textual analysis of Lahiri’s debut work through the lens of diasporic discourse, in order to show how the poised and elegant voice of the Indian-American writer significantly sheds new light on diasporic literature, mediating between ethnic and global issues.
Pubblicati nel 1999, all’inizio di un nuovo secolo e sulla soglia del terzo millennio, i racconti in Interpreter of Maladies di Jhumpa Lahiri (vincitore del Pulitzer per la narrativa, tra molti altri premi) narrano le vicende della nuova diaspora indiana, nel periodo immediatamente successivo alla riforma del 1965 della politica americana sull’immigrazione. Il presente articolo offre un’analisi testuale del libro di esordio della Lahiri attraverso la lente del diasporic discourse, al fine di mostrare come la voce equilibrata e elegante della scrittrice indiano-americana contribuisca, in modo significativo, a spargere nuova luce sulla letteratura della diaspora, mediando tra questioni etniche e globali.
