Analysis Of The Poem ' The Welsh Critic Who Doesn 't Find Me Identifiably Indian ' By Arundhati Subramaniam

- Throughout ‘To the Welsh Critic Who Doesn’t Find Me Identifiably Indian’, Arundhati Subramaniam argues that the “the business of language”, or the language that one speaks, should not dictate one’s identity.

For instance: Subramaniam reinforces the critic’s cultural assumptions in a defiant tone; she questions him, repeatedly, about language and eventually she challenges him, insisting he should explain to her how he would receive her as “Identifiably Indian”....   [tags: English language, United Kingdom]
