The York Notes Companion to Postcolonial Literature explores the diversity and richness of postcolonial literature and literary theory, engaging with topics such as race, gender and sexuality, globalisation and multiculturalism. Examining key postcolonial texts, including Heart of Darkness, Wide Sargasso Sea, Beloved and Born to Slow Horses, the Companion covers a range of genres in detailed commentaries, and guides students through key literary theories and debates. Connecting texts to their historical and scholarly contexts, this is essential reading for any student of postcolonial literature.
