  • Introduction : inner territories -- National imaginaries, global flows, and uncanny repetitions : Conrad's Heart of darkness and the postcolonial novel -- The soul of nationhood : W.E.B. Du Bois and the psychic politics of place -- Ghostly forms : race, nation, and genre in Frantz Fanon -- My nation, my object : Severo Sarduy's fantasmatic Cuba -- Postscript : remapping nationalism.
  • "Worlds Within tracks the changing forms of novels and nations against a long, postcolonial twentieth century. While globalization has sometimes been understood to supersede national borders, this book distances itself from before-and-after sequences in order to trace the intersection between national and global politics." "Drawing from psychoanalytic and deconstructive accounts of identity, difference, and desire, Worlds Within explores the making and unmaking of ideas of nation, globe, race, and gender in the late imperialism of Joseph Conrad, the anticolonial nationalism and nascent Third-Worldism of W.E.B. Du Bois and Frantz Fanon, and the decolonizing nationalisms and postcolonial cosmopolitanisms of novelistic descendants, such as the Indian and Indo-Caribbean writers Salman Rushdie, Amitav Ghosh, V.S. Naipaul, and David Dabydeen, the anglophone and francophone African writers Chinua Achebe, Nggi wa Thiong'o, Assia Djebar, and Tsitsi Dangarembga, and the Cuban postmodern novelist and theorist Severo Sarduy. Across this global field, national identity is subtended by transnational affiliations and expressed through diverse and intersecting literary forms, from imperial fable to national allegory, racial romance to revolutionary manifesto, neocolonial tragedy to postnational diasporic novel, melancholic memory to cosmopolitan hybridity. This formal heterogeneity, like the book's geographica, linguistic, and temporal range, contests the notion of a singular postcolonialism. Connecting nationalism's subjective inner territories to the world-spanning flows of capital, empire, decolonization, and genre, this book reconsiders the politics of form in the era of globalization and with comparative literature and world literature as models, takes postcolonial studies beyond its present boundaries."--Jacket.
