Synopsis

Frontiers of Caribbean Literature in English features a series of original and comprehensive interviews with major Caribbean writers both male and female from different generations. Among these are Derek Walcott, George Lamming, Caryl Phillips and Jamaica Kincaid. Using informal interview techniques enables this history to appear both natural and informal. The extensive footnotes, however, supply details of extensive academic research showing how Caribbean literature reflects the varied experience of a region of diverse creed, race and culture. Among the highlights of the book are George Lamming's crucial lecture 'Concepts of the Caribbean' and the full text of Derek Walcott's 'The Sea is History' together with his comments on the poems. Frontiers in Caribbean Literature in English focuses on the critical issues of colonialism, and its affect on colour, class and sexuality. It provides a readable, lasting reference point for the study of Caribbean literature.
