the answers should be in a separate paragraph for each of this two questions
#1Lahiri's characters struggle with self-knowledge. They are also often thwarted in their sense of fulfillment. What does Lahiri seem to suggest about self-knowledge (achieved or not) and fulfillment (achieved or not)? How possible do they seem? Why do we want them? Do we know when we've achieved them? What happens when we do/don't? Discuss the answers suggested by the literature -- support your interpretation with specific reference to the texts.
You might also consider another question her stories seem to ask: Can we truly ever know another person? What seems to be the answer she suggest in the stories?
Characterization in literature refers the step by step process wherein an author introduces and then describes a character. The character can be described directly by the author or indirectly through the actions, thoughts, and speech of the character.
Lahiri is masterful at indirect characterization. I will address this in my lecture on "A Temporary Matter." In this thread, explore how Lahiri develops the characters in other stories (i.e. NOT "A Temporary Matter") using indirect characterization. Be sure to point to specific details and language used and explain what it reveals about a given character.
