The Oxford History of the Novel in English

The Novel in Africa and the Caribbean since 1950

Edited by Simon Gikandi

Oxford History of the Novel in English

  • Situates and contextualize African and Caribbean fiction in relation to the history of genres, publishers and printing presses, and readerships
  • Offers an account--with reference to a range of novels over a 50-year period--of literary trends, techniques, canons and perspectives without losing a sense of the distinctiveness of particular authors
  • Reconsiders African and Caribbean fiction in relation to colonial discourse, to see the ways it is beyond the reach of colonial logic, and to place it within a global framework
