Description of Spatial Politics in the Postcolonial Novel
In her progressive examine of spatial places in postcolonial texts, Sara Upstone adopts a transnational and comparative method that challenges the tendency to have interaction with authors in isolation or in relation to different writers from a single geographical setting. Suggesting that isolating authors in phrases of geography reinforces the primacy of the nation, Upstone as a substitute illuminates the energy of spatial locales equivalent to the journey, metropolis, house, and physique to allow private or communal statements of resistance towards colonial prejudice and its neo-colonial legacies. While specializing in the main texts of Wilson Harris, Toni Morrison, and Salman Rushdie in relation to specific spatial places, Upstone affords a variety of examples from different postcolonial authors, together with Michael Ondaatje, Keri Hulme, J. M. Coetzee, Arundhati Roy, Tsitsi Dangarembga, and Abdulrazak Gurnah. The result’s a robust case for what Upstone phrases the ‘postcolonial spatial creativeness’, impartial of geography although at all times absolutely contextualised. Written in accessible and unhurried prose, Upstone’s examine is marked by its respect for the methods in which the writers themselves resist not solely geographical boundaries however educational categorisation
