This book presents a critical analysis on the significant postcolonial and postmodern fiction. It provides a critical insight into the issues of postcolonial and postmodern world. It critically analyses the novels and delves deep into postcolonial and postmodern psychology and addresses notions of displacement, Orientalism, partition, definition of self, world, and other; exile, hybridity, migration, nation and cultural schizophrenia; race and imperialism, including Western views of the “Orient”, the treatment of gender and feminist revaluations of mainstream philosophical assumptions, the connections between “post-colonial” thought and Western postmodernism and Western literary/cultural theory etc. The texts are examined in their historical contexts and emphasize upon their significance in the present time. The texts are approached from any given cultures in their profoundest interconnections in a global setting where aesthetic and ideological perspectives are constantly shifting. It provides with an interplay between Western and Eastern visions as shaped by imperial and post-colonial history – which is refracted through diverging and layered narratives.
