Writing South/East Asia in English
Against the Grain, Focus on Asian English-Language Literature
- Author: Shirley Geok-Lin Lim
Arranged over ten chapters, Shirley Lim’s penetrating essays demonstrate that local speech, national language and national canons have much to tell us, not only about place and region but about the nations of the imagination. She looks at the wok of Timothy Mo, Zulfikar Ghose and Kamala Das and examines the relationship of identity, text and nation. Her insights into the origins and diverse concerns of South East Asian writing in English stem from a variety of critical perspectives and serve to illuminate the wider study of modern world literature. Writing S.E./Asia in English is a scholarly analysis of how post-colonial writing has absorbed and redefined Western literary traditions.
