Abstract:

Frontiers of Caribbean Literature in English offers an historical and critical examination of anglophone Caribbean literature. The volume, which consists chiefly of in-depth interviews with writers such as Samuel Selvon, George Lamming, Caryl Phillips and Jamaica Kincaid, will interest both the general reader and the specialist. Two distinct generations of writers are dealt with - one whose experience was formed mainly in the Caribbean, and a younger generation who grew up in Britain and North America. The connections that are established and explored between these writers illustrate the development of Caribbean literature and illuminate critical issues of colonialism, color, class and sexuality.
