dc.description.abstract DURING the second half of the nineteenth century, the academic study of the 'New Literatures in English' began to expand the normative imperatives of the English canon to the extent that it gradually developed canons of its own under the controversial institutionalization of 'postcolonial studies' . This new fashionable body of writing claimed to overcome the dominant ways in which the relations between western and non-western people and their worlds were viewed. However, if on the one hand, it largely succeeded in securing recognition and appreciation of those literatures produced in the fonnerly colonized parts of the world, on the other, the hyper-learned technicalities of its critical approaches - along with its overabundance of theoretical analysis - contributed to a comparatively limited study of transnational encounters with the cultural speciflcities of concrete literary texts. This gap in postcolonial literary criticism has thus fuelled this study of both Katlthapura and Fontamara on the basis of their 'transnational, cross-lingual process of pollination', as Salman Rushdie puts it (69), and through a more 'humanistic' perspective according to Edward Said's definition: en_US
