Book Description

October 12, 1994 0415051991 978-0415051996 0
Post-Colonial Literatures in English, together with English Literature and American Literature, form one of the three major groupings of literature in English, and, as such, are widely studied around the world. Their significance derives from the richness and variety of experience which they reflect. In two volumes, this Encyclopedia documents the history and development of this body of work and includes original research relating to the literatures of some 50 countries and territories. In more than 1,600 entries written by more than 600 internationally recognized scholars, it explores the effect of the colonial and post-colonial experience on literatures in English worldwide.

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.

...a comprehensive, reliable and up-to-date compendium...The EPCLE is certain to be an invaluable and standard reference resource for at least the next decade in the field of post-colonial literary studies.
