Abstract: With the emergence of globalization studies, world literature, and the spread of postcolonial literature, postcolonial literary studies have come under increased scrutiny as a discipline. One of the key themes in this scrutiny is the relationship between aesthetic and political value. This paper examines two relatively recent critical assessments of this relationship in postcolonial literary studies, Graham Huggan’s The Postcolonial Exotic and Sarah Brouillette’s Postcolonial Writers in the Marketplace, and suggests, drawing on Isobel Armstrong’s notion of the “radical aesthetic,” that literary aesthetics may be fruitfully conceived, not as immediately political but “anterior” to (cultural) politics.
