Contains a discourse on the literature of the New World - the new worlds of the Americas, Asia and the Pacific. The author argues that the writers in the new worlds are forced to make a conscious choice between the forms of language and literature brought by the imperialists and those that have developed in the new world itself. While these may be the forms recovered from a pre-colonial past or forms developed during the colonial period itself, in either case they will now be marked by the experience of imperialism.
