One of the most prolific, controversial and prominent female writers of Turkey, Elif Shafak touches on gender roles, immigration, quests for freedom and transformation which an individual makes in a new country in her eight novel, Honour. In Honour, Shafak broadens her earlier writing on the theme of identity, to analyze what it means to be an immigrant when the authoritative cultures one has fled are still carried with them. This paper draws the attention to the perception of multicultural identity in Elif Shafak’s eight novel, Honour (2013). ‘Multiculturalism’ is the harmony of various cultures, where culture includes racial, religious, or cultural groups and is demonstrated in traditional behaviors, cultural beliefs and values, motifs of thinking, and informative manners. Honour is a sample story of an immigrant minority which includes constant settlers who carry their own language(s) and culture(s) which are distinct from those of the host society.
