Decolonising Fictions
Brydon & Tiffin, Diana & Helen
ISBN: 9781871049855
Dangaroo Press,  1993. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. As New/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. Concerned with the literatures of Australia, Canada, and the West Indies. Power relationships, British Imperialism and strains of resistance are examined in the works of writers that include Patrick White, Randolph Stow, V. S. Naipaul and Margaret Atwood. From cover: "Post-colonial literary texts in themselves, in their subversive and restitutive powers, are thus shown to be 'decolonising fictions'; but the book argues that the contexts within which these fictions have usually been placed also needs to be examined. The critical and theoretical traditions which relegate these literatures to the margin or periphery also need decolonising." Size: Octavo (standard book size). Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing.

This bears the indelible stamp of the writer's personality and domination of his material to the extent of ignoring many common formalities of language and syntax and making frequent and prolonged use of metaphor to sustain and enrich the narrative. – Rear panel blurb The only damage to the book is a slight loss of colour on the spine section, and foxing of the inside of the front cover.
