Edward Said’s Orientalism: A Critique of Western Cultural Hegemony

 
Synopsis

This book locates Edward W. Said in the discipline of Postcolonial studies and Orientalism of which he was a progenitor as well. Out of all his works Orientalism (1978) is the most discussed and criticized book. The present book elucidates the unique features of Said's discourse on orientalism (a European understanding of the Eastern world) and looks at Said's understanding of the discourse and institution of orientalism critically. To understand the nuances of cultural hegemony and the way Said problematize it this book traverses structuralist, poststructuralist, postcolonial and Deconstructive discourses. This study is an attempt to expose the intricate relationship between culture and literature that establishes the hegemony of the Euro-American metropolitan center in the present International scenario and the way these neo-colonial forces patronize the cultural hegemony of the orthodox groups in the formerly colonized world.
