The article aims to conduct a brief comparative study of the possible overlaps between postmodernism and post-colonialism from theoretical and literary perspectives. My point of departure would be an article by the Canadian art and literary critic Linda Hutcheon. I would then proceed to develop my discussion at the theoretical level by drawing an analogy between Said’s concerns in Orientalism and Baudrillard’s notion of simulation. This discussion is then followed by more practical aspects of overlap in postmodern and post-colonial works of fiction. The article ends with a conclusion cautioning us about taking the idea of the overlaps at a face value.
