Postcolonialisms interrogates the place of early English verse in relation to the British canon, proposing that the first postcolonial literature in English was English itself. The enquiry integrates a range of approaches to textual study, drawing together, on the one hand, postcolonial and Caribbean criticism and, on the other, methods of historical and contact linguistics, and applying these within a framework of thought consistent with New Medievalism.
