Postcolonial imaginings : fictions of a new world order by David Punter( )

21 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and French and held by 1,670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides new perspectives on a wide range of writers, and at the same time provides a radically new development of many of the most pertinent issues in the field of postcolonial writing and theory. It constitutes a new engagement between the 'postcolonial' and a conception of the literary which is richly innovative in its deployment of psychoanalytic, deconstructive and other approaches to the text." "The book begins with some brief background to the issue of decolonisation and its contemporary effects. It is informed throughout by a clear sense of literary and political context, within which chosen texts - by well-known writers (Derek Walcott, Chinua Achebe, Edward Kamau Brathwaite) as well as less well-known ones (Joan Riley, Susan Power, Abdulrazak Gurnah) and writers not often seen in a postcolonial context (James Kelman, Seamus Deane, Hanif Kureishi) - can be situated. The chapters which follow are based around themes such as violent geographics; hallucination, dream and the exotic; mourning and melancholy; diaspora and exile; delocalisation and the alibi. This new approach to the complexities of the postcolonial allows the reader to appreciate some of the richness, but at the same time the political and cultural ambivalence, which underlies postcolonial writing."--BOOK JACKET

18 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on psychoanalysis, deconstruction, and other approaches, Punter proposes a new theory of the relations between writing and loss. In each chapter he looks at a different corpus of Gothic literature from the 18th century to the present, among them classics such as Frankenstein and Wuthering Heights, modern authors including Stephen King and Robert Bloch, and postmodern writing by William Gibson and Don DeLillo. He also compares Chinese fictions that have affinities with the European Gothic tradition" -- Booknews
Spectral readings : towards a Gothic geography by Glennis Byron( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As we reach the end of yet another century, and interest in the Gothic once again grows, it begins to appear as though the Gothic has something quite specifically to do with the turns of centuries, that, as David Punter writes in the introduction to this collection, "the very attempt to turn over a new leaf unavoidably involves conjuring up the shadow of the past, watching its curious shapes fall over the attempted purities of the future". These essays explore some of the most significant current issues concerning the terrain of the Gothic and the Gothic perspective, offering a variety of possible answers to the crucial question: What is Gothic?"--Jacket
