The Postcolonial Novel

The Postcolonial Novel

by Richard Lane




  • A concise introduction to a core and popular area of literary studies.
  • Provides extended case studies which survey and summarise key critical debates and as such are invaluable for teaching.
  • Places the emphasis on the text first and theory second, thus providing a unique and much needed approach to postcolonial literature, which in the past has been maligned for being theory driven.
  • Takes an historical approach, thus covering a good range of texts that have generated lots of critical discussion and evaluative materials.
  • Written clearly for an undergraduate reader, with introductory overviews at the start of each chapter.
