Abstract

This thesis attempts to demonstrate the potential of a 'cross-cultural' perspective in understanding migrant/exilic writing. The differences between the novels of Antigone Kefala and Yasmine Gooneratne can be used to illustrate alternative possibilities in a Centre/Margin approach to migrant and exilic writing inherent in multiculturalism and postmodernism. While Kefala conservatively wishes to privilege the margin, Gooneratne dissolves its boundary in search of a cross-cultural imagination.
