Abstract: This article discusses the portrayal of various aspects of postcolonial resistance in the historical novel Islands by Dan Sleigh. The article place emphasis on the strategies of resistance followed in this novel by referring to structural aspects like the author, narrator and focalisation; the undermining of historiography and master narratives, the description of colonial space and the Other as constructs in colonial and postcolonial literature. The article concludes that Islands can be read as a historical novel with a strong postcolonial vision.
