Title A Postcolonial Reading of George Lamming´s A Wedding in Spring and Jean Rhys The Day they Burned the Books
 
Creator Edouihri, Aymane
 
Subject colonial; post colonial discourse; resistance, power, subjugation
 
Description The colonial enterprise laid down the foundation to a well -defined discourse of domination and subjugation and an established asymmetrical power relation where the colonizer´s master narrative is the superior and dominant voice. Such discourse is a totalizing and denigrating account of the colonized whose voice is smothered and turned into a voiceless passive subject. In this context, the colonial subject engendered a counter-discourse within the colonial womb to tell their side of the story. This discourse of resistance has concretized in what has come to be called post-colonial discourse and postcolonial literature.
