AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A Kingdom and a Place of Exile: Postcolonial Women Writers is a collection of essays by Dorothy Jones on postcolonial texts written by or about women. [...] Her essays examine a diverse array of texts, prinicipally by writers from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the Caribbean and India. Issues of migration, diaspora and race sit, often uneasily, alongside nation-building, masculinist settler myths and imperialist regimes in the postcolonial environments of these works. Many of Jones essays concern themselves with physical location and mapping as well as with imaginative territories inhabited by writers and readers.' [From the book's Introduction by Melissa Boyde, p. 5]
