Postmodernity and Cross-culturalism
This collection of eleven essays concerns postmodernity in cross-culturalism, a contiguous literary movement from modernity in East-West literary criticism. Most of the contributions address particular cross-cultural relations such as postcolonialism in Indian literature and paganism in Spanish culture. The writers and critics discussed range from Emerson, Twain, and Lacan to Kenzaburo Oe and Haruki Murakami, Salman Rushdie, Richard Wright, and Alice Walker.
