Abstract

Diaspora means the dispersal of a population from one place to another. As opposed to the traditional conception restricted to the Jewish experience, the term now includes captivity, state-eradication exile, forced and voluntary exile, emigration, migration, and imperial diaspora. Cuban population forms a large diaspora in the United States. A majority of this migration took place during the 1959 Communist Revolution. Cristina Garcia’s novel Dreaming in Cuban also depicts this process of migration and in doing so puts forward the argument that the diaspora population always has a longing to return home. The present paper puts forward the argument that the diaspora population always has a longing for a return to the home land, but the possibilities of such a return and reunion are few.
