about

Reading a wide range of well known postcolonial writers along with more recent authors, Spaces of Fiction / Fictions of Space implements a new theory of literary spatial marking derived from the linguistic theory of deixis, and made accessible via an analysis of Beckett's 'semi-colonial' play Waiting for Godot .
RUSSELL WEST-PAVLOV is Professor of Postcolonial Literatures at the Free University of Berlin, Germany.
