Discussion Questions — “Post-Colonial Writing and Literary Translation” by Maria Tymoczko — M.Paczkowski (11.7)

Criticism of post-colonial and minority culture literature will benefit from a clearer sense of the parameters, yet who decides such parameters and wouldn’t such be continuously in flux?

A minority-culture or post-colonial writer will have to pick aspects of the home culture to convey and to emphasize, but how does one choose which aspects and elements are of the most importance?

Can those not knowledgeable of either the oppressed or colonized culture make claims about a post-colonial text?
