Literature has always been the medium to help readers find their own identity and sometimes to even expand it further. In the last few years, self-reflection has thus become one of the leading ways for communicating a first-person narrator’s experience. It is particularly distinctive for the literatures of minorities, which deal with the past in their own specific way. Language, as a medium for exchanging experiences, of dreams, and thoughts is the main intermediary between past and present. In the literatures of minorities, the personal memory of an individual becomes connected with the collective memory that refers to a particular time and a particular place.
