Representation and Resistance: A Post-Colonial Study to Bowles’ Sheltering Sky
Representation and resistance are two important concepts in the framework of postcolonial theory. Representation refers to the way the West represents the East in literature and other works of art. Resistance is applied to the bulk of works that were and are produced in the processes of decolonization. Both concepts are recurrent in works of criticism that can be labelled as postcolonial. This books investigates how these concepts work. It puts Paul Bowles’ Sheltering Sky under scrutiny to show postcolonial theory at work.
