Most critical reflection has come from medievalists and modernists, but in focusing on selected writers in those periods they are generally uninterested in larger issues of bilinguality in the full sweep of literary history and theory. Conversely, many scholars in postcolonial studies today are bringing bilinguality into focus as a cultural issue, chiefly one of subalternity in diglossic conditions, although without perhaps fully appreciating the wider, historical and intellectual currents that inform literary bilinguality and the specific challenges of self-translation.
