In A Question of Power, Bessie Head presents the production of the subject by using the postcolonial novel as a form of constructivist action against colonialism. Arguing against the compartmentalization of the postcolonial novel as merely literary aesthetic, Head instead presents the novel as a form of political literature, offering intricate details of the manifestation of subjectivity and representations of the liminal subject in decolonizing states through the replication of formal colonial powers in informal social institutions.
