Writers of the Caribbean Diaspora: Shifting Homelands, Travelling Identities

Author : Jasbir Jain
pages: 288
Edition : Paperback
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Sterling Publishers
Published : 2008

An attempt to understand Caribbean histories, patterns of migration, and race relations, this collection of essays has taken up most of the representative authors of the region, either by addressing their work or through contributions by the writers themselves. Caribbean writing covers landscape, plantation background, use of folklore, Creole speech, slave histories, and the memory of transmitted cultures. Its political world attracts interference and its presence is felt in different parts of the world, becomming a living culture that is experienced in multiple ways and that takes upon itself the responsibility of validating the very act of living.</DIV>

She is the author of more than 12 books, including Beyond Postcolonialism Dreams and Realities of a Nation and Reading Partition/Living Partition.
