The Postcolonial Historical Novel is the first systematic work to examine how the historical novel has been transformed by its appropriation in postcolonial writing. It proposes new ways to understand literary realism, and explores how the relationship between history and fiction plays out in contemporary African and Australasian writing.
Hamish Dalley is Assistant Professor of World Literature at Daemen College, Amherst, New York, USA. His research focuses on historical representation and literary form in various branches of postcolonial fiction.
