The Routledge reader in Caribbean literature

£8.99

Product description

The Routledge Reader in Caribbean Literature is an outstanding compilation of over seventy primary and secondary texts of writing from the Caribbean. Locating key writers within a specifically Caribbean framework, the editors Alison Donnell and Sarah Lawson Welsh demonstrate that these singular voices have emerged not out of a cultural void or sparse literary background, but out of a wealth of literary tradition which until now was unknown or critically neglected.Writers from 1900 to the present, both famous and less well-known, are given a voice in this remarkable anthology which encompasses poetry, short stories, essays, articles and interviews. 

Amongst the many represented here are: C.L.R. James, George Lamming,  Jean Rhys, Benjamin Zephaniah, Claude McKay,Jamaica Kincaid, Sylvia Wynter, Derek Walcott, David Dabydeen, Grace Nichols. 

The editors provide an accessible historical and cultural introduction to the writings, making this volume an ideal teaching tool as well as a fascinating collection for anyone interested in the literature of the Caribbean.
