Summary
This work revisits the famous question posed by critics from Sainte-Beuve and T.S. Eliot to J.M. Coetzee to ask how classics emanate from postcolonial histories and societies. Exploring definitive trends in 20th and 21st century English and Anglophone literature, Mukherjee demonstrates the relevance of the question of the classic for the global politics of identifying and perpetuating so-called core texts
