Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 2,5, Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg (Institut für Anglistik), language: English, abstract: When you start a course in a new semester you have different expectations what to deal with in this course. In sports it is obvious practicing the kind of sport you have chosen. But in English most expectations are different because you have never heard of some topics in your life before. The course 'Black British Writing' with Mrs. Bartels fulfilled my expectations surprisingly because we dealt with different British authors whose origins are in southern countries and who live in Great Britain, now. The main part of this course was taken up by the novel White Teeth by Zadie Smith. Therefore it seems appropriate writing an essay about this book. Of course, it is not possible to write ten pages about the whole book, but to concentrate on one important aspect. The aspect I will concentrate on is the introduction and analysis of the members of the three families dominating the novel. The families presented in the novel are not the kind of family I know in real life. Their attitudes towards life differ from ideologies like in Germany which is worth being analysed and that opens new vistas.
