Abstract

This co-authored chapter (Chapter 27 of the Oxford History of the Novel in English Volume 10 The Novel in South and South East Asia) examines history and themes of collective and individual memory in post-1945 English novels of Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines. In critical accounts of English fiction the historical novel is generally considered a principal genre of national and cultural identity and this chapter reflects on Anglophone historical fiction from this region.
