experience exile from Cuba to the United States?

this question, including naming three ways Lourdes experiences exile.

When we talk about how someone
experiences exile, we want to think about these issues:

1.  What led the person to go
into exile form the home country? And so, what circumstances led Lourdes to go
into exile from Cuba to the United States? What was happening in Cubato her
country, to her family, and to her directly?

2.  How does the person feel
about the new country? And so, what do we know about how Lourdes feels about
the United States? What does she do and say that SHOWS us how she feels about
her new life?

3.  How does the person view the
country he or she fled? And so, what do we know about how Lourdes feels about
Cuba? What does she do and say that SHOWS us how she feels about Cuba when she
returns for a visit?

THOUGHTS ABOUT LOURDES

Remember
that we have listed NUMEROUS quotes where we see how Lourdes feels about Cuba,
starting early in the book when we first meet Lourdes in the third chapter. We
learn even more when Pilar heads for Miami in chapter 4.

Think
back to where we learn about how the Cuban Revolution effected Lourdes’ family
and about the rape she survived.

Think
about what Lourdes does when she comes to New York. What does she call her
bakery? How does she envision the future of her bakery? Who does she invite to
attend gatherings at her bakery?

Think
about how Lourdes reacts to being in Cuba. What does she say? What does Pilar
tell us about Lourdes’ reactions to Cuba.

FROM WIKIPEDIA SUMMARY OF THE THEME OF EXILE

You cannot quote from this,
but use this brief summary to help you understand the topic.

Exile

This
novel explores the impact that exile has on those in exile and those left
behind. The exile in the novel reflects the real exile experienced by thousands
of Cubans, as the Puente family flees Cuba in the wake of the revolution just
as many did in 1961. Celia acutely feels the absence of her granddaughter in
Cuba, and she is saddened by the nomadic existence of her children, but she is
powerless to change these things. Lourdes uses the exile as an attempt to
ignore her past in Cuba and bury the memory of her rape. Her vision of Cuba is
frozen at that point in the past. Only in her return to Cuba is Lourdes able to
revisit the memory of her rape and her lost child. Pilar grows up with a
longing to return to her grandmother in Cuba without knowing the reality of
life in Cuba beyond her memories. She too is powerless for a long time to reach
Cuba—even her attempt at running away fails. She is distanced further from her
family roots and her cultural heritage due to her mother’s unwillingness to
speak of them. This distance is exemplified by Pilar’s distance from the
Spanish language, as she only is able to dream in Spanish after she makes a
return visit to Cuba.

Lourdes Puente:
Lourdes is the eldest child of Celia and Jorge, the wife of Rufino, and the
mother of Pilar. After beginning her exile in the U.S., Lourdes becomes an
entrepreneur, owning her own bakery. She is a strong supporter of capitalism
and U.S. patriotism, and she despises El Líder and what he has done to
Cuba.
