Abstract:

"Opal Palmer Adisa employs autobiographical prose, dramatic monologue, lyric poem, praise song, blues and prophetic rant to enact the construction of an identity. At its centre is a Rastafarian sense of 'i-ness', but its outer dimensions fully encompass an African Jamaican/American woman's radical consciousness of gender, race, geography, the spiritual and the sensual, the social, political and the historical as the co-ordinates of a dynamic space for dialogue and connection." "Above all, I Name Me Name shares with us the making of a writing persona, the interface between personal and social space, the imagination, and the characters who come unbidden to demand that their stories be told."--book jacket.
