• Hey Ryan, I was reading your about me and since you were saying you would like to pursue a career in NYC politics a good Professor to take/talk to about that would be Professor Reichl, have you taken him? He teaches courses along those lines if your interested 🙂

  • Hello! When you said “he wants to be a new person who never belongs to his mother. His mother to him is a stanger. However, he now recognizes that nobody cures his scar, but himself” I saw Ichiro’s experience as the same as Gogol’s in which his name was only seen as burdensome to himself.

  • I love that quote you cite in which Allos states, “I know deep down in my heart, that I am in exhile in America….” especially when its compared to the idea at the end of the novel of America as opening hands. Through all his obsticles Allos now knows that struggle comes with the territory […]

    I really enjoyed yuor blog on this and your comments when we talk in class. I too grew a distaste for Moushumi, but I also saw her as a foil for Gogol. Once Gogol stops trying to assimilate and instead tries to aquire some aspects of Bengali culture, Moushumi starts where he ended :(. Also […]
