Abstract

In the past decade the mode of analysis calling itself post-colonialism has begun to flourish. Prompted by a need to redress a number of imbalances and oversights within the field of cultural and literary studies, post-colonialism takes as a major goal the writing of history's colonial wrongs. The aim of this paper will be to introduce some ideas, provoked by Michel de Certeau, that critics engaging with post-colonial discourse may find useful.
