SELVON AND MULTICULTURAL LONDON

Abstract

Author(s): Fatma KALPAKLI

This paper aims to analyze whether multiculturalism is a utopia or an accessable reality by referring to Sam Selvon’s the Lonely Londoners since Sam Selvon depicts the pros and cons of living in London where the intersections of many races, ethnicities and religions can be seen. Moreover, problems faced by the non-Anglo-Saxon people and the obstacles which do not allow them to integrate with the Anglo-Saxon culture and how these obstacles in the way of a multicultural society can be removed are depicted in detail and some questions are raised in the mind of the readers. Thus, the issue of multiculturalism; harmony-in-diversity /chaos-in-diversity is put on the agenda in the Lonely Londoners by Sam Selvon.
