Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The post-colonial literary canon is currently comprised of privileged national & regional texts. The English-language literatures of Africa, India, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia & the Caribbean clearly emerged from an earlier model of Commonwealth literature. With this book, the post-colonial canon is expanded to include the literatures of the colonized peoples of North America. The collection encompasses a broad range of themes, including a consideration of prominent national & ethnic literatures & writers; a discussion of Native Canadian writing & US-Canadian literary relations; an examination of key 'white' Australian & New Zealand texts & the 'black' post-colonial writings of Australian Aboriginals, & women writers in South Africa & Zimbabwe. The issues of slavery & the Black Diaspora are explored through the writings of Fred D'Aguiar, Merle Collins & Toni Morrison, & the link between the black & Hispanic discourses of America is examined through studies of Chicano/a writing & the theory & writing of the US-Mexican border. The collection concludes with an appropriate focus on the colonized indigenous peoples of North America. The comparative methodology offered by post-colonialism provides a challenging point of departure for considering the literary expression of Native American writers. The authors also engage in the major debates within existing post-colonial studies, addressing issues such as hybridization, subaltern voices, decolonization, multiculturalism & border cultures.

Inhaltsangabe: Despite recent debates, the post-colonial literary canon remains comprised of privileged national and regional texts. The English-language literatures of Africa, India, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia and the Caribbean clearly emerged from an earlier model of 'Commonwealth literature'. Post-Colonial Literatures examines the development of this body of writing, and is the first such study to expand the paradigm to accommodate the literatures of the colonised peoples of North America. The authors engage with the major debates within existing post-colonial studies, addressing issues such as hybridity, subaltern voices, decolonisation, multiculturalism and border cultures. Subjects covered include Fred D'Aguiar, Merle Collins and Toni Morrison; Native Candian writing and US-Canadian literary relations; writings of the Autralian Aborignals; women writers in Zimbabwe; and the relationship between black and Hispanic discourses of America. The comparative methodology offered by post-colonialism provides a challenging point of departure for considering the literary expression of Native American writers. Offering perspectives on texts from both sides of the Atlantic, this collection confronts the emerging consensus on post-colonial literatures.
Inhaltsangabe: The book explores what characterises a â?˜good lifeâ?? and how this idea has been affected by globalisation and neoliberalism.
