Exploring Postcolonial Aspects of Translation

Exploring Postcolonial Aspects of Translation

This book investigates the postcolonial aspects of the translations of Ahlam Mostaghanemi’s Memory in the Flesh and Tayeb Saleh’s Season of Migration to the North. It argues that both novels provide an image of the shift of persona in the post-colonial Arab world, and how individuals have been affected with that change. It also sheds light on that sense of “homesickness” felt by individuals when they are in a host country, and how they dealt with that situation. The themes of “identity”, “romance” and “feminism” are highlighted in order to help readers gain a clear view of the experiences of the characters.
