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. The book provides a clear and provocative path through the texts and debates of a major and exciting new area of literary studies.
