Literary Landscapes challenges the popular view that fictional representations of place and space by modernist authors have little or nothing in common with those of postcolonial writers. Detailed studies of the work of authors such as Thomas Hardy, Franz Kafka, Henry James, Joseph Conrad, E. M. Forster, Jean Rhys, Virginia Woolf, Pauline Smith, J. M. Coetzee, Zakes Mda, Nuruddin Farah, Isabel Allende, Jose Donoso, Rosario Ferre and Andre Brink help to form a more complex understanding of the varied and shared ways in which two groups of writers experience and represent space and place.
