The postcolonial context has created new diasporas: writers who have moved to the canonized literary centres have become dislocated men and women of letters living »simultaneously in a

multiplicity of competing cultures« B. King. The literary utterances of these typically postmodern, dislocated, ambiguous individuals focus on certain SPCCiflC relations: the relation of the centre to the periphery, the relation between different cultural and civilizational frames, the relation of the writer as a part of some collective context towards himself-herself as an »otherness« on the edges of cultures. Some writers, e. g. Naipaul or Stow, transcend their difficulties in taking root through the process of writing, where writing itself becomes home, identity, and a way of self-creation. As an example of an attempt to define cultural identity we have considered the writer Bharati Mukherjee who by origin is an Indian from Bengal but has spent her adult life in Canada and the USA. She tries to solve the problem of identity through her writing and by creating a world of her own, while also negotiating between herself and her context in the process of making a new history for herself.
