Diasporic Literature goes beyond the difference of culture and provides the space that an immigrant can present him/herself in a new identity. Songs of Exile is an instance of this kind of presentattion of an Iranian poet Banoo Zan landed in Canada in which she presents the different form of narration) that unearthes the layers of her identity and culture in exile. In fact, thorugh the lens of Bhabha, Banoo Zan challenges the integration of the convention of confirmed selfhood and heritage of the colonizer in the crashes happening between two different cul-tures. Her poems demonstrate the subjectification process through her past and the stereotype of the new culture based on Bhabha’s hybridity in order to provide us with a better view of international culture. Therefore what makes this research significant is Bhabha’s approach to interpret the conflicts by which the meaning of home and belonging transfers into the concrete one rather than a national fact which gives the colonized a state of suspension, so she can fill the gaps of the colonizer’s cultures with whatever she is carrying from her past to form a new version of hybrid identity.
