9780192892324: Colonial and Postcolonial Literature: Migrant Metaphors (Opus)

Wole Soyinka, Peter Carey, Margaret Atwood, V.S. Naipaul, J.M. Coetzee--postcolonial writers from around the world now enjoy wide popularity. This book is a challenging look at the history of such writing, how it developed and how it departs from writing in the British Empire in the Victorian period. Boehmer focuses throughout on key themes and images--journeying, loss, the search for community, the arrival of the stranger--expanding and redefining them with reference to a broad range of texts, from Trollope, Kipling, Orwell, D.H. Lawrence, and Katherine Mansfield, to authors as recent as Ben Okri and Michael Ondaatje, and the Aboriginal Australians Sally Morgan and Mudrooroo.

Review:


"Boehmer's book is without any doubt a precious contribution. It provides a refreshingly readable, current, and knowledgeable account of the issues as the author displays an excellent grasp of the complexities of the subject."--Research in African Literatures


"A lucidly written introduction to an important new field of literary studies."--Amritjit Singh, Rhode Island College


"Boehmer presents a comprehensive, lucid, and nuanced account of both the literature of the British empire and the literature in opposition to empire....Colonial and Postcolonial Literature is as accessible to the newcomer to the field as it is useful to the specialist."--Wold Literature Today
