If one has different beliefs than those of his/her friends and/or family, can we call that person a ‘foreigner’ if they are going through the same things that Julia Kristeva describes in her book? In today’s culture, the same aspects that apply to foreigners, such as loneliness, separation, and the need to fit in, apply to many teenagers, whether they grow up in a town they have

    that follows Emilia manages to utter two words.  She really only finds her voice when fired by indignation as when Iago confirms that Desdemona has been called a whore, and even then much of her utterances or short phrases.  Even when she really gets going, lambasting Othello after discovering the murder, most of what she says consists of phrases that are half a line in length or less.

Listening to the cries and the calling, I have to get home. I have to, the children want their dinner. She sits in the bus away from the window. Afraid to look out. Cars and people on the footpath.

The father of the boy brought this case to court not only because of his concerns for his son, but also because of his son’s complaints about the vast amount of smoke which existed in his household.
