Postcolonial Transition and Cultural Dialectics
The enhanced globalization, intellectual cross-fertilization and cultural dialectics have made Post-colonial Literature, Diasporic literature and Studies of different Cultures very important now a days. This book explores postcolonial literature, development of postcolonial literature and some of the major debates generated by the emergence of postcolonial approaches to literary studies in the late twentieth century. In this book the works of three postcolonial writers, Anita Rau Badami, Bharati Mukherjee and Shauna Singh Baldwin have been analyzed who focus on the phenomenon of immigration, the status of new immigrants, the adjustment to new lands, complexities of cross-cultural negotiation, cultural assimilation and the feeling of alienation often experienced by expatriates and their struggle for identity and survival. This book offers new insight into Postcolonial literature and generates the awareness of the complex ways in which the identities are constituted historically through migration, displacement, colonialism, exile and cultural and racial hybridization.
