This site provides resources for all those interested in the influence of the British imperial process on literature from the 19th through the 21st centuries. Using colonial discourse and post-colonial theory as a point of departure, some pages examine the British idea of 'Empire' and the colonial enterprise in a selected range of 19th-century authors and their work; others consider 20th and 21st-century texts, in an attempt to understand how imperialism affected literary texts produced in Britain's former colonies.

The Section of "Imperial Archive" indicates political and cultural history of Australia, Canada, India, The Carribean, Ireland, Nigeria and other African regions. In addition, this section also gives Transnational Imperial & Post-colonial Themes, Key Concepts in Post-Colonial Studies, more than 50 links of post colonial sites but many of them do not work.

The pages are authored by students working on the MA degree in Modern Literary Studies in the School of English at the Queen's University of Belfast.

This site is a section from the Theatre Forum of the University of California, San Diego. It provides information on playwright Harold Athol Lanigan Fugard and his play "Sorrows and Rejoicings."

You can find a brief biography of Furgard, and an analysis and contextual background of "Sorrows and Rejoicings," including Furgard's relation to this particular play, the setting, the characters, the plot, the main themes, a few significant quotes, references to Furgard's "Notebooks," trivia information on Fugard himself, critiques, production information, and many photos of various productions.

This site has a lot of information not only on facts on the playwright and his work, but also much data on Fugard's personal aspect, and on the productions. However, it is not divided into separate links, so it may require a patient task of scrolling through the information, though it is definitely worth your time.
