This paper is an analysis of the novel “Love Medicine” by Louise Eldrich. This novel plays on words and the emotions of people. While at one end the characters are concerned with their spirituality as it comes into conflict with their culture, at the other end they contend with the basic instincts of sexuality within their nature. The narrator creates a story of cultural assimilation. This contends that through assimilation the identity of the individual is lost.
” The novel Love Medicine by Louise Eldrich is one that plays on words and the emotions of people. While at on end the characters are concerned with their spirituality as it comes into conflict with their culture. I.e. the conflict between Christianity and Native American Culture at the other end they contend with the basic instincts of sexuality within their nature. Combining the two thoughts the narrator creates a story of cultural assimilation. This contends that through assimilation the identity of the individual is lost.”
