Book Cover
A Concise Companion to Postcolonial Literature

This Concise Companion offers an innovative, multi-disciplinary approach to Postcolonial literatures and cultures from 1947 to the present.

In a series of newly-commissioned essays, leading international scholars, including C.L. Innes and Susan Bassnett, seek to explore and explain the ideas and practices that have emerged from the dismantling of European empires, and the impact that these have had on Postcolonial literatures and cultures. This authoritative Companion investigates the key concerns of literature of this period, such as race, culture, and identity; literary and cultural translations; and the politics of resistance. Individual chapters focus on a broad-range of subjects such as identity studies, orality and literacy, nationalisms, feminism, anthropology and cultural criticism, the politics of rewriting, new geographies, publishing and marketing, translation studies.

A Concise Companion to Postcolonial Literature is an indispensable guide for anyone seeking an authoritative understanding of the intellectual contexts of Postcolonialism.
