Synopsis: The interaction and clash of cultures produces a unique type of literature in which the nature and destiny of characters are shaped by cross-cultural encounters. Although such encounters have long played a role in literature, they are increasingly important in modern creative works. "The Marriage of Continents" is a pioneering study that addresses the role of cross-cultural interaction and multiculturalism in modern literature. Investigating the international convergence of literature and culture, author Guy Amirthanayagam discusses the work of Kipling, Orwell, Burgess, Scott, Naipul, and Rushdie to demonstrate how growing opportunities for cross-cultural contact embody the actual processes of interaction in creative literature. As a part of his literary analysis, Amirthanayagam also emphasizes the importance of 'place' or context along with the time-endorsed criteria of sense, tone, feeling, intention, and artistic merit. "The Marriage of Continents" is a comprehensive work on a timely subject that is sure to excite literary scholars and social scientists with an interest in culture contact and multiculturalism.
About the Author: Guy Amirthanayagam is Professor Emeritus of Literature and Culture at the East-West Center in Honolulu, Hawaii and is a reviewer for "The Washington Post Book World".
