Abstract: The present paper discusses the representation of immigrant identity and experience in Bharati Mukherjee’s novel Jasmine (1989) drawing on the ideas of McGowan, Lange, Baumeister, and Isajiw. In Jasmine, Bharati Mukherjee (b. 1940) explores the idea of the mixing of the East and the West with a story of a young Hindu woman who leaves India for the United States, depicting the young woman’s desire for freedom and her search for identity as she illegally travels and is influenced by the experiences she has in each of her new locations, moving from Punjab to Florida to New York to Iowa and finally to California
