Postcolonial Theory and Literature

Rajeshwar Mittapalli (Editor) K. Damodar Rao (Editor) P. Mallikarjuna Rao (Editor)
Synopsis This anthology offers new modes of response in the theory and practice of postcoloniality. While taking stock of the postcolonial theoretical constructs it stresses the need for viable critical models to match the creative spectrum evidenced inn postcolonial societies. It provides a pointer to the various means of the imperial center to falsify, mythicise and control postcolonial studies as the need to develop local/national models of criticism gains in importance. The book in its wide ranging sweep, covers different terrains – canonical texts, emerging literatures and native Indian literatures – and subjects some individual texts to closer critical scrutiny. It takes into its fold different genres and explores the possibilities of alternative critical viewpoints.
