Overview

Literary Landscapes challenges the popular view that fictional representations of place and space by modernist authors have little or nothing in common with those of postcolonial writers. Detailed studies of the work of authors such as Thomas Hardy, Franz Kafka, Henry James, Joseph Conrad, E.M. Forster, Jean Rhys, Virginia Woolf, Pauline Smith, J.M. Coetzee, Zakes Mda, Nuruddin Farah, Isabel Allende, Jose Donoso, Rosario Ferre and Andre Brink help to form a more complex understanding of the varied and shared ways in which two groups of writers experience and represent space and place.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'This is a very well considered essay collection that includes some experienced and highly able scholars. The essays in the volume are original, cross-cultural in content, and make a valuable contribution to the burgeoning field of geographies in literature.' Linda Dryden, Reader in Literature and Culture, Napier University, UK

'This in-depth and carefully argued collection of essays...has a strong cross-cultural premise that emphasizes the significant ways in which the experience and depiction of space and place in modernist and postcolonial literary texts overlap.'

- Susan Smit-Marais, PYP Online
