概要 This dissertation consists of an introductory essay, a review of the literature, four major extended essays, a concluding essay, and a bibliography. The "Introduction" defines "Multicultural Literatures" and explains this work's focus on the outsider in Forster, Carver, Singer and Sumii. The overall theme in the dissertation is how the Outsider is projected in each writer's selected works in a particular culture, society and period of time, specifically in terms of class, race, sexual orientation, afflictions, misfortunes, disabilities, prejudices and discrimination. It concludes that all the writers' works are dedicated to the breaking down of artificial barriers, to creating in us more understanding and compassion for people who are suffering for being pushed to be outsiders.
