Blurb/Shorttext:
This book evaluates the double self from different perspectives the immigrant/homeland self, the old/new woman self, the pre and post-colonial self and the offline/online virtual self. It starts in the first chapter by examining the double immigrant/homeland self as seen in Alaa Al Aswany’s novel Chicago. Then, in the second chapter the double old/new woman self is analysed as perceived in Kate Chopin’s novel The Awakening. Next, in the third chapter the double pre and post-colonial self is tackled as displayed in Coetzee’s novel Disgrace. Then, in chapter four the double virtual and off-line self is investigated via illustrating the pros and cons of virtual worlds such as Second Life and total virtual immersion. Finally, the double self is analyzed in retrospect.This deep critical analysis of different mirrors of our double selves delves into the real world and displays the truth of our constant strive to reach our true identities in a universe that is mostly blurred and vague.
