about

Critics have argued that the field of postcolonial studies has become melancholic due to its institutionalisation in recent years. This book identifies some limits of postcolonial studies and suggests ways of coming to terms with this issue via a renewed engagement with the literary dimension in the postcolonial text.

Editorial Reviews

"This is an engaging and truly thoughtful book. It is poised and ambitious, both in its bold and subtle handling of the literary texts on which it centres and in its overarching arguments. Sorensens reconsideration of the place of the literary in postcolonial studies seems very timely, as regards not only the evolution of postcolonial studies but the future of literary studies more widely." --Nicholas Harrison, Professor of English, King's College London, University of London, UK.
