Identity Crisis in "Leaving Tangier" by Tahar Ben Jelloun

Dr. Calaivanane.R

The paper illustrates the issues of migration and its harrowing results on migrants that are a much disputed topic in multicultural society. One of the main themes of Francophone literature is identity crisis that the immigrants face. Usually immigrants are considered a threat to the national unity of a country, but on the other hand, the effects of immigration on the immigrants, their identity and adaptation to a new country are much debated issues which have attracted scholarly studies. Tahar Ben Jelloun has very well depicted the pains and the psychological implications of immigration in the novel Leaving Tangier. The novel represents the struggle of identity that is caused due to the migration of people from their roots to a new country in search of job and their dream of leading a better life.
