The Exiled and the Immigrant: Two Faces of the Same Self

Oana Andriese

Abstract


The present paper aims at analysing two concepts used in the works of the american writer of romanian origin, Andrei Codrescu. Codrescu refers to himself as being both an immigrant and an exiled. Far from equivalence these two concepts lead to various controversial discussions related to Codrescu's status. We intend to break the ambiguity of these two concepts and to demonstrate that in Codrescu's work both can be used in different contexts. By the means of personal experience, Codrescu assigns new meaning to immigration and exile making the aforementioned terms in two faces of the same self
