Abstract: The field of postcolonial studies has evolved through a continuing exploration of the effects of colonialism on countries and individuals. Among the objects of such exploration are the literary texts that offer a powerful and meaningful expression of the lived experience of (post)colonialism. As Ashcroft, Griffith, and Tiffin state in The Empire Writes Back: More than three quarters of the people living in the world today have had their lives shaped by the experience of colonialism. Literature offers one of the most important ways in which these new perceptions [those that have arisen due to the effects of colonialism] are expressed and it is in their writing and through other arts that the day-to-day realities experienced by the colonized peoples have been most powerfully encoded and so profoundly influential.
