Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This encyclopedia loosely refers to writing affected by the process of colonization. Bangladesh, Canada, Hong Kong, India, Malta, and Sri Lanka are only a few of the countries included. While there are other works on individual countries and types of literature, such as the Oxford Companion to Canadian Theater (Oxford Univ. Pr., 1989) or the Reference Guide to Short Fiction (St. James, 1993), no major source compares regarding number of countries or areas of literature covered. Individual writers, national literary developments, and major genres that provide a cross-cultural view are all assessed. Entries on individuals include a short identifier, coverage of works, and biography, and for most a brief bibliography that makes further exploration of little-known authors easier. The entries on the national literary movements and the genres are lengthy and include a bibliography. All entries are signed. With the growing multicultural emphasis on literature, this work is a welcome and needed source. Highly recommended for all undergraduate collections.
