The emigrants by George Lamming( Book )

39 editions published between 1954 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Emigrants is an elaborately conceived novel, dense with dynamic characters and evocative details. First published in 1954, it focuses initially on the emigrant journey, then on the settling-in process. The journey by sea and subsequent attempts at resettlement provide the fictional framework for Lamming's exploration of the alienation and displacement caused by colonialism. This is the epic journey of a group of West Indians who emigrate to Great Britain in the 1950s in search of educational opportunities unattainable at home. Seeking to redefine themselves in the "mother country," an idealized landscape that they have been taught to revere, the emigrants settle uncomfortably in England's industrial cities. Within two years, ghettoization is firmly in place. The emigrants discover the meaning of their marginality in the British Empire in an environment that is unexpectedly hostile and strange. For some, alienation prompts a new sense of community, a new sense of identity as West Indians. For others, alienation leads to a crisis of confrontation with the law and fugitive status. There is a wealth of information here about the genesis of the black British community and about the cultural difference between black British and West Indian/Caribbean

Of age and innocence by George Lamming( Book )

26 editions published between 1958 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In one of the most important of all Caribbean novels, first published in 1958, Lamming probes beneath the surface of apparent reality to explore an ethics of perception, communication and knowledge. In its tension between tragedy and hope, its poetry and multiple layerings, Lamming's novel invites the reader to envision both the possibilities of change and the difficulty of achieving it. --Book Jacket
