Genealogies of Modernism in Conrad, Rhys, and Pramoedya

Christopher GoGwilt

  • Offers a distinct group study of three canonical modernist authors from around the globe: Conrad, Rhys, and Pramoedya
  • Discusses both familiar English translations of works by Pramoedya and works not yet translated into English
  • Develops the term 'postcolonial philology' to re-conceive the history of literary criticism and to explain the linguistic turn of twentieth-century critical theory
