Reading the `New` Literatures in a Post-Colonial Era Summary

Reading the `New` Literatures in a Post-Colonial Era by Susheila Nasta

The 'new' literatures have most commonly been seen as a staging post en route to the current 'post-colonial' era. Yet these literatures and the diverse cultural histories they represent are older than such recent interpretations of them. This collection of essays investigates ways in which we can return to 'reading' these 'new' literatures without falling back on current critical assumptions.
