According to Helen Tiffin, "The project of post-colonial literatures
[is] to investigate the European textual capture and containment of
colonial and post-colonial space and to intervene in that originary and
continuing containment." She explores, in this respect, what she calls
"the canonical counter-discourse," an approach whereby "a postcolonial
writer takes up the character or characters, or the basic assumptions
of a British canonical text, and unveils those assumptions, subverting
the text for post colonial purposes."1 This modus operandi is
familiar through texts like Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea (1966) and
Sam Selvon's Moses Ascending (1975), which respond respectively to
Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre (1847)
