Random Postcolonialism Post. Thanks! — Bodies in the Library:
I’m not done with the postcolonial series yet. But I’m doing some research so I can post an extensive list of works for everyone to read: from poetry to theatre. I was wondering if you are also interested in films and/or art in general because I am taking a course on African Literature that is actually dealing with movies. Meanwhile, Emily at The Book Eater has interviewed me and I’m trully honoured. This is my first interview, so, be sure to check Emily’s and explore her wonderful blog. Also, Risa has given me the opportunity to interview her on some postcolonial issues. I came up with the idea after reading her comment and I thought it would be wonderful to leave academic works besides and ask a young woman in India about present issues. I am still amazed she is praised for speaking such good English. I would like to know what you would like to read about. I think I’m done with the most basic postcolonial points, but maybe you are interested in countries I haven’t mentioned or know works I haven’t said a word about. So, if you have written a review and would like to share it, leave the link below so we can enjoy it. Thanks to everyone, especially to Risa and Emily for the opportunities they have brought along. Suggested works: The Constant Gardener (John LeCarré)- A perspective on postcolonial Kenya. The book is simply perfect and the movie is saved by Rachel Weisz and Ralph Fiennes. As I said, this book changed me, so owe it a post in the near future. Related
