    Wilson Harris, many times nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature, is a British writer of Guyanese origin, one of the most original novelists and critics of the twentieth century, and probably the first to use and interpret the aesthetically fruitful notion of cross-culturalism. Harris's insights into the profound symbiosis between history, culture and artistic expression were initially inspired by his encounters with Amerindians in the Guyanese rainforest interior, where he led many surveying expeditions. These encounters aroused his interest in pre-Columbian peoples, who figure prominently in many of his novels and stories. His perception of the Guyanese landscape is the source of his unique narrative rhetoric, richly metaphoric language, and philosophy of existence: i.e. the epistemological and phenomenological interrelatedness between man, animal life, and nature. The present study offers magisterial, in-depth interpretations of Harris's exhilaratingly complex and shape-shifting fictional worlds. Hena Maes-Jelinek OBE is professor emerita of the University of Liège and a member of the Belgian Royal Academy. She has written extensively on Wilson Harris' work, on British and postcolonial fiction, and on postcolonial criticism inspired by Wilson Harris's concepts. With Gordon Collier and Geoffrey V. Davis she is co-general editor of the Cross/Cultures series published by Rodopi.
