Item description for Writers of the Caribbean Diaspora: Shifting Homelands, Travelling Identities by Jasbir Jain...

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 transmittedcultures. 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 andthat takesupon itself the responsibility of validating the very act of living.
