About this book

This book explores the varied ways in which modernist and postcolonial innovations in fiction are motivated by crises and revolutions in the human perception and appropriation of space. 'Space' for the writers concerned has its political, historical, cultural and gender dimensions as well as its geographical identity.

Reviews

'This is a very well considered essay collection that includes some experienced and highly able scholars. The essays in the volume are original, cross-cultural in content, and make a valuable contribution to the burgeoning field of geographies in literature.' Linda Dryden, Reader in Literature and Culture, Napier University, UK

'This in-depth and carefully argued collection of essays...has a strong cross-cultural premise that emphasizes the significant ways in which the experience and depiction of space and place in modernist and postcolonial literary texts overlap.'

- Susan Smit-Marais, PYP Online
