This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on identity anxiety, intellectual heritage and the post-colonial experience of Singapore and Malaysia as reflected in their local literature. This study has traced through a range of Anglophone literary texts of Malaya and those of post-independence Singapore and Malaysia a history of anxiety that attends the condition of being not-at-home. The findings also indicate that most colonialist writings and those literatures written after colonialism depict a situation in which cultural signs are continuously formulated, investigated, and reformulated.
