Description - The Postcolonial Novel by Richard Lane
* A concise introduction to a core and popular area of literary studies.* Provides extended case studies which survey and summarise key critical debates and as such are invaluable for teaching.* Places the emphasis on the text first and theory second, thus providing a unique and much needed approach to postcolonial literature, which in the past has been maligned for being theory driven.* Takes an historical approach, thus covering a good range of texts that have generated lots of critical discussion and evaluative materials.* Written clearly for an undergraduate reader, with introductory overviews at the start of each chapter.
