This course is designed to focus on literary movements like postmodernism and postcolonialism in the twentieth century English-language literature with special attention to the key figures like Derek Walcott and Wole Soyinka. Students will have some ideas about modernism, post modernism, realism, and nationalism through different dimensions of cross-cultural reading, differences between individual responses and politically socio-economic circumstances. At the end of this course, students will be able to identify and describe distinct literary characteristics of postcolonial literature, discover the multiplicity of layered meanings by a close textual analysis of postcolonial literary works and understand the complex relationship between literary texts’ stylistic features and poets’ socio-political outlooks on cultural issues within the time frames of postmodernism and postcolonialism in the twentieth century English-language literature across the world.
