Abstract: "The central themes of Margaret Atwood’s short story The Man from Mars include the hierarchical relationship between the Occidental Self and the Oriental Other (represented here by a white, rich, Anglophone girl named Christine, and a mysterious Asian man, respectively), and the construction of otherness by the majority group. Both issues are fundamental to postcolonial theory, which is why my reading follows a great many interpretations of Atwood’s literary works—and particularly her novels Surfacing, Bodily Harm, and The Robber’s Bride—which bring to light the complexities inscribed in the field of postcolonialism".
