The Cambridge introduction to postcolonial literatures in English

"The past century has witnessed the extraordinary flowering of fiction, poetry and drama from countries previously colonized by Britain. Placing its emphasis on literary rather than theoretical texts, this book offers discussion of many internationally renowned authors, including James Joyce, Chinua Achebe, Salman Rushdie, Les Murray and Derek Walcott. It also includes historical surveys of the main countries discussed, a glossary, and biographical notes on major authors. Lyn Innes provides a guide to a vast array of authors and texts from a wide range of sites."--Jacket
