Postcolonialism and Fiction in English

Sheobhushan Shukla (Editor) Anu Shukla (Editor)
Synopsis Postcolonialism, a major critical discourse in the humanities, especially in literary studies, has been amply interrogated but needs further interrogation in respect of its potentialities and prejudices, privileges and paradoxes. Whereas it paves the way for globalization and postnationalism. It also leads to fierce contestation and controversy. It aims at the generation of non-dominative and non-coercive epistemology but is politicizes the works/texts and gets mired in the politics of power. Some eminent scholars from distant and different parts of the world make a serious endeavour to define, what has so far remained indefinable, post-colonialism and its various, contrarious dimensions, its extensions and limitations and its collateral and coterminous sites. The work would not lay any claim to its being definitive but it certainly offers seminal insights into some current raging questions about postcolonialism, its special affinity with fiction, feminism and quest for identity, ethnic and linguistic and issues of self, alterity and subalternism.
