"Resistance from within" : reading and Neocolonialism
Devadawson, Christel R.

Data: 1997
Resum: Colonial discourse analysis at present seems to need to be radicalised so that it may become a more sensitive instrument to counter the ernergent colonialisms negotiated by contemporary literature. I believe this radicalisation rnight be achieved through a study of changing textual patterns and the changing societies which shape them. To support this argument -which involves an understanding of how the present adapts the past to suit its needs- 1 offer a reading of the way in which Kipling's character Mowgli is re-worked by two contemporav writers: Hanif Kureishi and Sara Suleri. The predicates of race, class and gender -and the causes and consequences of their fracture in societies both generated and threatened by new colonialisms- are examined.
