White Teeth by Zadie Smith Summary

Zadie Smith’s dazzling debut caught critics grasping for comparisons and deciding on everyone from Charles Dickens to Salman Rushdie to John Irving and Martin Amis. But the truth is that Zadie Smith’s voice is remarkably, fluently, and altogether wonderfully her own. Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read At the center of this invigorating novel are two unlikely friends, Archie Jones and Samad Iqbal. Hapless veterans of World War II, Archie and Samad and their families become agents of England’s irrevocable transformation. A second marriage to Clara Bowden, a beautiful, albeit tooth-challenged, Jamaican half his age, quite literally gives Archie a second lease on life, and produces Irie, a knowing child whose personality doesn’t quite match her name (Jamaican for “no problem”). Samad’s late-in-life arranged marriage (he had to wait for his bride to be born), produces twin sons whose separate paths confound Iqbal’s every effort to direct them, and a renewed, if selective, submission to his Islamic faith. Set against London’ s racial and cultural tapestry, venturing across the former empire and into the past as it barrels toward the future, White Teeth revels in the ecstatic hodgepodge of modern life, flirting with disaster, confounding expectations, and embracing the comedy of daily existence.

Sourires de loup by Zadie Smith Summary

"Un matin de bonne heure, tard dans le siècle, à Cricklewood Broadway. À six heures et vingt-sept minutes, en ce 1er janvier 1975, Alfred Archibald Jones, tout de velours côtelé vêtu, était assis dans un break Cavalier Musketeer rempli de vapeurs d'essence, le visage sur le volant, à espérer que la sentence divine ne serait pas trop sévère. Prostré, les mâchoires relâchées, les bras en croix comme quelque ange déchu, le poing refermé d'un côté (gauche) sur ses médailles militaires, de l'autre (droit) sur son certificat de mariage, pour la bonne raison qu'il avait décidé d'emporter ses erreurs avec lui. [...] Il avait joué à pile ou face et s'était tenu sans défaillir au verdict du hasard. Il s'agissait là d'un suicide mûrement réfléchi. Mieux, d'une résolution de nouvel an." Maniant le loufoque, la satire et l'humour avec un art consommé, Zadie Smith produit ici un premier roman détonant, qui frappe par son ambition et son extraordinaire énergie. Ajoutons l'actualité des sujets abordés et la vitalité d'une prose qui se colore de tous les accents de la terre.

The 21st Century Comedy of 'White Teeth' by Joerg Schroeder Summary

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,7, University of Bremen (English-Speaking Cultures), course: The Transnational Novel, language: English, abstract: The 21st Century Comedy of White Teeth Contents 1. Polyglot Plot 1.1. Flexible omniscient narrator 1.2. Forwarded Reversals 2. Transnational Locations 2.1. Colours of Culture 2.2. Irish Storytelling 2.3. Transcultural Veto 3. Comedy 3.1.

Bibliography "It is useless to base any system on a human being." (Henri Bergson. Laughter. 1900) White Teeth is both an ample and intense read as well as a bestselling success after its first publication in 2000. It has found its creative way via television adaptation and a four-hour long theatre play into the school curriculum. In my term paper I will show that White Teeth is a comedy for the 21st century generated through a polyglot plot and transnational locations. Mostly based on the first half of the novel, it is where I could draw up my hypotheses. Archibald Jones' and Samad Iqbal's male friendship is affiliated with society and culture, and therefore useful on reflexion. Their synchronized mid-life crises move towards conflicts exposed in the amusing narrative. Critically user-oriented but limited due to paper-size, I will try to converge to the multilateral scope of new fiction. While researching secondary literature published in the 2000s about postcolonial and transnational corpora many authors claimed superordinate terminology adhered to Zadie Smith's debut novel White Teeth. Nonetheless, serious analytical debates were missing an essential genre making literature enjoyable more than ever. In this term paper, my aim is to prove that Zadie Smith escaped the compelling hassle of both a debut and millennium novel by jocular upda"

Multiculturalism and Magic Realism in Zadie Smith’s novel White Teeth: Between Fiction and Reality by Sylvia Hadjetian Summary

Since the 1970s, there has been increasing concern with the impact of (post)colonialism on British identities and culture.

The first part of this book provides an overview of the former British Empire, the Commonwealth and the history of Bangladesh, Jamaica and the Jews in England as relevant to White Teeth. Following this, the role of the (former) centre of London will be presented. Subsequently, definitions and postcolonial theories (Bhabha, Said etc.) shall be discussed.The focus of this book is on life in multicultural London. The main aspects analysed in these chapters deal with identity, the location where the novel is set and racism.

The Importance of Mangal Pande (to Samad) in Zadie Smith's 'White Teeth' by Florian Konig Summary

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, http: //www.uni-jena.de/, course: Black British Literature, language: English, abstract: [...] The main goal of this paper should be an in depth look at the character of the Muslim waiter Samad Iqbal and his fixation upon his antecedent Mangal Pande who allegedly started a revolutionary uprising in India in 1857 and was therefore executed by the British colonial rule. The initial analysis of the topic allowed the perception of an insufficient material concerning the scholarly treatment of Pande's function in White Teeth. Therefore, his representation through the characters perceptions and his role in the novel will be analysed. The initial point of such research refers to key elements of motifs and narrative structure Smith's; namely an issue of belonging and integration, the significance of (both personal and collective) history and one's roots. At first, the clear historical background, just as the role and significance of objective history, i.e. historic facts, would be analysed. Subsequently, I will discuss the role Mangal Pande plays in Samad's life and the significance history plays for him. Following this discussion, I will try to answer the question how other characters think and feel about Mangal Pande. In a concluding chapter, I will try to determine what the importance of this 'factual' predecessor to Samad is and discuss the importance of history, family backgrounds and cultural legacies for immigrants who are stuck in a crisis of identity in their new 'homeland.'

Bhabha's “concept of hybridity and what he calls the third space” (Bentley 20008: 20) which Bhabha developed in contrast to multiculturalism (cf. Sommer 2001: 50). Furthermore, “Stuart Hall's concept of new ethnicities” (Bentley 2008: 20), which deals with “the historical development of racial politics” (ibid.: 21), will be outlined. In the following character analysis, with regard to Bhabha's third space, this seminar paper will examine whether Samad Iqbal and Irie Jones are able to create such a third space or not.

Sibling Constellations in "White Teeth" (2000) and "Britz" (2007) by Valerie Hurst Summary

Intermediate Examination Paper from the year 2011 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,7, University of Tubingen, course: Literature PS II - Extremism in Recent British Fiction and Film, language: English, abstract: In the end of White Teeth and Britz, the respective sibling pairs are at the same time at the same place, each opponent fighting for his or her conviction and against the sibling. But the fact that in the end they are together in the same situation doing the same, reveals that siblings are connected to each other, no matter what conflict they are fighting out. The novel White Teeth by Zadie Smith from 2000 and the movie Britz by Peter Kosminsky from 2007 are both dealing with the motif of opponent siblings and their conflicts. Although this constellation is used as a starting point in both works, the realization and development of the stories is interpreted differently. This paper shall show the parallels and differences of the two sibling pairs amongst each other and their conflicts, and be compared to the tradition of the motif of sibling constellations in literary history, to show the development of facets of this motif. It is accepted to be a fact that both sibling pairs are geared to the literary motif of rivalling siblings, but in White Teeth, the more traditional form of two brothers, in this special case actually twins, is discussed and enhanced, whereas Britz seizes a brother-sister-constellation, which traditionally can be seen as harmony endowing and less rivalling. To get a basis for analysing and comparing the special cases in the chosen works, the motif history and its development will be revised with some examples, which is followed by the argumentation part. 2.

Identity in Zadie Smith's "White Teeth" and Hanif Kureishi's "My Beautiful Laundrette" by Elisabeth Werdermann Summary

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Paderborn (Institut für Kulturwissenschaften), language: English, abstract: Who am I? What makes me me? These are questions of daily importance to every individual human being. The question of what defines us in our per-sonality cannot be answered in a single sentence, or easily. Multiple external factors from the field of culture such as ethnicity, race, class, gender, sexual orientation or history impinge on who we are, what we identify ourselves or are identified with. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, identity defines "Who or what a person or thing is; a distinct impression of a single person or thing presented to or perceived by others; a set of char-acteristics or a description that distinguishes a person from others." Depending on a person’s social surroundings with all its cultural identifiers, his or her identity is shaped. In Zadie Smith’s novel White Teeth and Hanif Kureishi’s screenplay My Beautiful Laundrette identity is presented and problematised as “In-betweenness” . Both works focus on immigrants and their children, the se-cond generation, and the difficulties they face in their daily life caused by in-betweenness. In-betweenness as a term is quite self-explanatory and depicts ambiguity on several levels like belonging, ethnicity or sexual orientation/ habits, to name only a few. This ambiguity entails the social life of the characters as well as their emotional state. In the context of belonging, it is Cherry, from My Beautiful Laundrette, who first brings the term “in-betweenness” up: Oh God, I’m so sick of hearing about these in-betweens. People should make up their minds where they are. (Kureishi, p. 37) By this, she labels the subliminal topic of both literary works. With In-betweenness as a special form of identity, this research paper searches for reasons and circumstances, which make the characters in White Teeth and My Beautiful Laundrette feel in-between. On the basis of their behaviour and emotional condition against the background of their cul-tural affiliations, it will also specify the conflicts and probable advantages the state of in-betweenness entails.

Zadie Smith "White Teeth" and Multiculturalism by Sylvia Hadjetian Summary

Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of London (English Department), course: Contemporary London in Literature, language: English, abstract: Zadie Smith, having a Jamaican mother and an English father, just wanted to write a funny book in which not everybody is white, she did not think much about multiculturalism in London because it is nothing to talk about, it is normal. However, the book became one of the best novels dealing with multiculturalism. A multicultural society consists of two or more different cultures which are different in language, religion, traditions and their systems of values. Britain and especially London became multicultural mainly by immigrants who left their countries mostly for political, demographic or economical reasons in the search for freedom and a better standard of living. Some so-called push- factors are political suppression, bad working conditions or natural disasters. Pull- factors are religious and political freedom and better jobs and chances to learn some money, for example. Britain itself encouraged people from overpopulated and underemployed Commonwealth countries to immigrate because it needed cheap workers to staff the semi-skilled and non-skilled vacancies and to rebuild the war-shattered economy. Most of the immigrants worked in the National Health Service, public transport or in the manufacturing service. Many of them got only low-paid manual jobs and became victims of discriminatory practices. These immigrants started the transformation of Britain and especially of London into a multicultural society. White Teeth is the story of three families from three different cultural backgrounds, the English-Jamaican Jones, the Bangladeshi Iqbals and the Jewish Chalfens, told mainly between 1974 and 1992, set in Willesden, a multicultural suburb in North London, where Zadie Smith herself lives. The novel is told in the tones and structures of Jamaican and Bangladeshi English which makes the novel even more lively.

Zadie Smith by Tracey Lorraine Walters Summary

"Zadie Smith: Critical Essays is a timely collection of critical articles examining how Zadie Smith's novels and short stories interrogate race, postcolonialism, and identity. Essays explore the various ways Smith approaches issues of race, either by deconstructing notions of race or interrogating the complexity of biracial identity; and how Smith takes on contemporary debates concerning notions of Britishness, Englishness, and Black Britishness. Some essays also consider the shifting identities adopted by those who identify with both British and West Indian, South Asian, or East Asian ancestry. Other essays explore Smith's contemporary postcolonial approach to Britain's colonial legacy, and the difference between how immigrants and first-generation British-born children deal with cultural alienation and displacement. This thought-provoking collection is a much-needed critical tool for students and researchers in both contemporary British literature and Diasporic literature and culture."--Back cover.
