The Empire Writes Back: Theory and Practice in Post-Colonial Literatures Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The experience of colonization and the challenges of the post-colonial world have produced an explosion of new writing in English. This diverse and powerful body of literature has established a specific practice of colonial writing in cultures as diverse as India, Australia, the West Indies, Africa and Canada. This comprehensive study opens debates about the interrelationships of these literatures, investigates the powerful forces acting on language in the post-colonial text and shows how these texts constitute a radical critique of the assumptions underlying Eurocentric notions of literature and language.

Synopsis:

Explores colonial writing in cultures as diverse as India, Australia, the West Indies, Africa and Canada, examining the inter-relationship of these literatures and looking at the powerful forces acting on language in the post-colonial text.
