Summary
  • In this original and accessible introduction to post-colonial literatures in English, Dennis Walder guides the reader through the historical, linguistic and theoretical issues that inform post-colonial literary study. He then goes on to provide three detailed case studies, focusing upon Indian fiction in English, Caribbean and Black British poetry and contemporary South African literature
  • In a searching final chapter he considers, through a focus upon work by Ariel Dorfman, V.S. Naipaul and Michael Ondaatje, the questions of what might follow 'After Post-Colonialism'. Among the writers and theorists discussed are: Achebe, Brathwaite, Bhaba, Gordimer, Fanon, Freud, Henry Louis Gates, Jr, C.L.R. James, Marx, Mhlophe, Miller, Narayan, Ngugi, Nichols, Said, Sahgal, Sartre, Spivak, Trivedi and Walcott
