On The Margins

Author: O.R. Dathorne
ISBN 159221651X
On the Margins: Race, Gender, and Empire focuses on the role which "minority" writers adopt, particularly in English. The book examines how the minority, at times, the invisible, presence is related, classified and designated within majority culture. Dathorne illustrates how the majority onlooker intended to view and perceive the "other," as early as the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Monstrous races, gruesome objects and marvelous occurrences were all located outside the sphere of the majority culture. He utilizes his global knowledge in order to investigate varied responses to culture among Africans, African-Americans and Indians.
