It questions key issues, including hybridity, Otherness and territoriality, and expands the postcolonial field by introducing valuable, ground-breaking theoretical concepts: colonialism-as-grafting, colonialist discourse as a rhetorical and ideological palimpsest, m\u030Ctissage as the space of the impossible. Amar Achera\u0310ou explores imperial intellectual history and shows how the classical writers\u2082 ideas on race, culture, identity and Otherness served as a template for modern colonialist ideology. Besides mapping the multi-layered Western imperial consciousness, the book probes Europe\'s anti-colonial tradition. It integrates the discussion of modernist literature with a critique of European post-Enlightenment philosophical concepts. In this interdisciplinary study, Achera\u0310ou addresses both ancient and modern canonical texts, and offers insightful textual analyses of works by Aristotle, Plato, Rudyard Kipling, Rider Haggard, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Joseph Conrad, E.M. Forster, And\u0159 Gide and Albert Camus.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Acknowledgements -- Introduction -- PART 1 -- COLONIALIST DISCOURSE: A RHETORICAL AND IDEOLOGICAL PALIMPSEST -- Modern Europe and Classical Connections -- Imperial Ideology: Between Totality and Differentiation -- Impact of Classical Discourse of Barbarism on Modern Colonial Taxonomies -- Colonialism: From Hegemony to Infantilism -- Modernist Writers, Classical Ideal, and Empire -- PART II -- MODERNIST LITERATURE AND COLONIALISM: BETWEEN CONTEXT AND COMPLICITY -- Modernism, Modernity and Imperialism -- Culture, Civilisation and Inter-Racial Encounters: Joseph Conrad\'s Almayers\' Folly -- Redeeming the Colonial Idea: Joseph Conrad\'s Heart of Darkness -- Pedagogy of Re-Colonialisation of the Peaceful Re-Conquest: Andre Gide\'s Voyage au Congo -- Split Between Radical Rhetoric and Conservative Practices: Graham Greene\'s Journey Without Maps -- Getting out of the \'Nightmares\' of History and \'Stiff\' Imperial Culture: Albert Camus -- Conclusion -- Notes -- Works Cited -- Index.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/196109378<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/187568884<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Rethinking postcolonialism : colonialist discourse in modern literatures and the legacy of classical writers<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"315138620<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/315138620#PublicationEvent\/basingstoke_england_new_york_palgrave_macmillan_2008<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/196109378#Agent\/palgrave_macmillan<\/a>> ; # Palgrave Macmillan<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.palgraveconnect.com\/pc\/doifinder\/10.1057\/9780230583573<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/doi.org\/10.1057\/9780230583573<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/link.springer.com\/book\/10.1007\/978-0-230-58357-3<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=4325566<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/books.google.com\/books?id=4ucZAQAAIAAJ<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=266629<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.myilibrary.com?id=197612&ref=toc<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.myilibrary.com?id=197612<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.palgraveconnect.com\/doifinder\/10.1057\/9780230583573<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/link.springer.com\/book\/10.1007\/978-1-349-36264-6<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=416822<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/site.ebrary.com\/id\/10274443<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/catdir.loc.gov\/catdir\/enhancements\/fy0829\/2008000178-t.html<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/dx.doi.org\/10.1057\/9780230583573<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9786611976125<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780230583573<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/315138620<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
