Am y llyfr

Daw’r casgliad hwn o ysgrifau ag ysgolheigion llenyddiaeth Bortwgeeg Goa amlwg o India, Brasil, Portiwgal a Phrydain Fawr at ei gilydd. Am y tro cyntaf yn Saesneg, mae’r gyfrol yn olrhain gweithiau naratif, awduron a themâu allweddol y diriogaeth fach ond arwyddocaol hon. Roedd Goa yn drefedigaeth Portiwgal rhwng 1510 a 1961, a dyma safle cyfarfod arbennig o danbaid rhwng y Gorllewin a’r Dwyrain. Mae’r cyfarfyddiad problematig ond cynhyrchiol rhwng Ewrop ac India sydd wedi nodweddu hanes Goa yn thema amlwg yn ei llenyddiaeth, sy’n cynnig cipolwg pwysig a deunydd meddwl ôl-drefedigaethol. Llenyddiaeth iaith Bortwgeeg Goa yw’r unig lenyddiaeth sylweddol o India i gael ei hysgrifennu mewn iaith Ewropeaidd ar wahân i’r Saesneg. O ganlyniad, mae’n cynnig pwynt cymharu heriol gyda llenyddiaeth Saesneg o India ynghyd â lle i archwilio damcaniaeth ôl-drefedigaethol sydd yn aml wedi’i gwreiddio ymhlyg mewn profiad trefedigaethol Indiaidd Prydeinig.


Dyfyniadau

‘The traditions of thought associated with colonial and post-colonial Goan literature are long-lasting and diverse. However, while much in the area of post-colonial studies in India has addressed literary texts as central to a broader social and political understanding, in the scholarly work on Goa there has been a drift to remain in the realm of the discipline, both geographically and thematically. This book initiates a cosmopolitan dialogue not only with other literatures of India but also with other disciplines, challenging the borders of univocal academic location and thinking.’
- Professor Rosa Maria, ISCTE-University of Lisbon Institute

'Melo e Castro argues that “Goan literature in Portuguese is the only significant Indian literature to have been written in a European language other than English and, as such, provides both a challenging point of comparison with anglophone Indian literature and a space to examine post-colonial theory often implicitly embedded in a British Indian colonial experience.'
