This introductory chapter sets out the book's purpose, which is to explore the many ways in which forms and genres are artfully deployed and reinvented in the postcolonial literary arena. The book surveys the many different examples of poetic experimentation in the postcolonial context, and examines how these poetic forms respond to the challenges of their postcolonial situation, rather than seeking to establish a new, coherent genre or tradition. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
