The book includes essays on postcolonial literature, cross-cultural studies and multi-cultural scenario as reflected in literature. It is interesting to note the extent to which New literatures in English have altered / modified the canon of English literary studies thus allowing a larger space for it to be accommodated in the book. Therefore, an attempt to suggest alternate reading of not only the postcolonial texts but also those of the English and American canon has been encouraged. The book is intended to enrich and enlarge the interrrogation of migrations, diasporic cultures, narratives, identities and literary constructions. The focus on the growth and development of contemporary literature will enhance the scope of the current debate on polyethnic, multi-cultural texts that are studied and discussed at the national and international seminars all over the world. The contributors to this volume include well-known scholars and writers such as Kamau Brathwaite, Ngugi wa Thiong o, John Skinner, and Rohan Quince.
