Only $13.90 / page
The opposites of the cultures were handled in postcolonial writing by displaying the constant push-pull contest that seemed to be the norm for the time. Two popular works of fiction provide classic examples of this phenomona taking place for those who embrace the area as their home. In Half a life written by V.S. Naipaul and The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy, the reader is treated to a wonderful comparison of ways that these opposite situations can be displayed and enjoyed through the way it is expressed by the author.
