The Question(s) of Success

I wrote this paper for a class taught by Ralph Rodriguez titled Latinx Cultural Theory. The paper seeks to understand how Americo Paredes and Abraham Cahan conceptualize questions surrounding immigrant success and assimilation. It offers a close reading on the final chapters of these novels and challenges predominant scholarship in the field about these novels, drawing on additional multicultural literary theory.
