Transgression and identity are intertwined for the modern Arab American in a way where being offensive to one culture at any given moment is impossible to avoid. In this study of Sitt Marie Rose by Etel Adnan, I focus on the various contributing factors to the Arab American’s journey to self-discovery. These factors include colonialism and post-colonialism, religion, modern Western influence, and constructed gender roles.
