I propose to analyze the alienation theme of V.S. Naipaul’s â€Å"A House for Mr. Biswas† with an angle from cultural criticism which questions traditional value hierarchies and takes a cross disciplinary approach to works traditionally marginalized by aesthetic ideology of white European males or females. Instead of more attention to canon, cultural studies examine works by minority working ethnic groups and post-colonial writer, and the products of the folks, urban and mass culture, Popular literature, soaps, opera, rocks, rap music, cartoons, professionals, wrestling, food etc.----all within the domain of cultural criticism.
