The term Post-colonial has come into existence only during the end of the twentieth century. Substituting older terms like Commonwealth and Third World, it has not only extended the area of study but also more aptly encapsulated the overall mood and experience of the concurrent period termed as ‘post-colonial’. Post-colonial, ironically, and in spite of the prefix ‘post’, is retrospective, and suggestive of continuity with the colonial past. It underscores a persisting sense of insecurity, inferiority and reliance on the West in the new born nations. To stem these crises, different postcolonial writers and intellectuals explore possible means of recovery and reformation in their fictional world. This book looks into four postcolonial writers’ perspectival analyses of their respective situations from Africa and India. The study should help readers, researchers and academicians understand the socio-political reality of the postcolonial nations, for whom post colonialism is not just an academic discourse but a living reality.
