Post-War British Literature and the ‘End of Empire’ examines responses to decolonization in novels by British colonial servant and settler writers – including Anthony Burgess, Graham Greene, William Golding, Alan Sillitoe and Colin MacInnes, among others. These works not only depict decolonization within its global context but often propose a solution to Britain’s imperial decline through cultural renewal.
