Tentative booklist for…

Tentative booklist for my Colonial and Post-colonial Literature class -- funfun!! I love it that I get to teach lit, even if it generally is a hellacious amount more work than teaching creative writing. It won't necessarily be in this order. It was brutal, trimming it down to just ten required texts!!!

  • Kim, Rudyard Kipling
  • King Solomon's Mines, H. Rider Haggard
  • Things Fall Apart, Chinua Achebe
  • Irish Writing: An Anthology of Irish Literature in English 1789-1939, Stephen Regan
  • A Small Place, Jamaica Kincaid
  • Cracking India, Bapsi Sidhwa
  • Midnight's Children, Salman Rushdie
  • The Lion and the Jewel, Wole Soyinka
  • White Teeth, Zadie Smith
  • the bone people, Keri Hulme
  • The Rise and Fall of the British Empire, Lawrence James (optional, on reserve)
  • The Post-Colonial Studies Reader, Ashcroft, Griffiths, and Tiffins, eds. (optional, on reserve)
