POSTCOLONIAL LITERATURES: Re-writing identities

Postcolonial Literature. Words that evocates history, ans a past not always respectful when it comes to human rights. Nevertheless, Identity claims the present and the future. And we all hope it will be bright and fair for anyone…

Books like Midnight’s Children by S. Rushdie or Waterland by Swift, make us think that there’s a whole new interiority that over the last decades has begun to come out , and claims our attention.

News of the world contnuosly remind us that reading a book is not a waste of time. In most cases it can save from cynicism and sadness. And, most of all, it can give voice to stories never counted, imaginary or real, such as inWide Sargasso Sea“, by J. Rhys.

So read and write

And don’t forget that if the language sounds fresh and new it’s because it’s another perspective. Those of the emerging countries.

About Odile Milton

I travel through words whenever possible. Odile Milton is my signature on the web as I wanted an alter ego to indicate only my writings and works, not my personal life. Odile like the dancer in black swan, and Milton from the novel An old-fashioned girl. View all posts by Odile Milton
