Writing the postcolonial Nation: A study of three Zimbabwean literary texts explores the interplay of history, postcolonial theories and contemporary Zimbabwean literature with particular reference to three literary works published in the post year 2000 period - Olley Maruma's Coming Home, Shimmer Chinodya's Chairman of Fools and Chenjerai Hove's poems in Blind Moon.
The Zimbabwean cultural, economic and political spheres have been contentious and prone to polarized and politicized representations.
In a tumultuous political context, the struggle for the control of minds takes center- stage as the diametrically opposed major political parties trade blame for the dystopian contemporary time-space.
This book invokes multifarious voices on the obtaining "Zimbabwean crisis" in its critique of the social and political function of the contemporary Zimbabwean literary narrative.
The book studies the various ways in which literary works complexly further debates on the Zimbabwean crisis by way of representing some of the major forces shaping the Zimbabwean situation and should therefore be useful to students and critics of African literature.
