A history of literature in the Caribbean by James A Arnold( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This history for the first time charts the literature of the entire Caribbean, the islands as well as continental littoral, as one cultural region. It breaks new ground in establishing a common grid for reading literatures that have been kept separate by their linguistic frontiers. Readers will have access to the best current scholarship on the evolution of popular and literate cultures in the various regions since their earliest emergence. The History of Literature in the Caribbean brings together the most distinguished team of literary Caribbeanists ever assembled, cutting across ideological commitments and critical methods. Differences in point of view between individual contributors are left intact here as the sign of the colonial inheritance of the region. Introductions and conclusions to the various sections of the History written by the respective subeditors, set them in proper perspective. The unique synoptic aspect of the History lies in its comprehensiveness and its range, which are unequaled. -- Amazon.com
Edouard Glissant by J. Michael Dash( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and French and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this first full-length study of Glissant's creative and theoretical work J. Michael Dash examines his poems, novels, plays and essays in the context of modern French literary movements and the post-negritude Caribbean situation, providing both a useful introduction to, and a challenging assessment of, Glissant's work to date. Dash shows how Glissant has focused in an unprecedented way on the Caribbean in terms of the diverse and hybrid culture that has been created in the region, and how his ideas on a cross-cultural poetics are the shaping force in the francophone Caribbean 'Creolite' movement
Haiti and the United States : national stereotypes and the literary imagination by J. Michael Dash( Book )

29 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Highly stimulating history of Haitian and US perceptions of each other as seen in each country's literature from 1850s-1990s. Dash sets these texts in political context and repeatedly demonstrates the narrow line between 'imaginative' and 'objective' descriptions of Haiti by US writers. This critical perspective, combined with the author's knowledge of 20th-century Haitian literature, makes this study a particularly valuable one"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Reading the French Caribbean through Edouard Glissant : new approaches to Condé, Chamoiseau, Schwarz-Bart and Chauvet by Elizabeth Boxley Bowles Duchanaud( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Positioning the French Caribbean and its literature within a postcolonial context is not only tricky, but erroneous. A new area of study, the francophone postcolonial, however, offers a francophone voice to what has come to be called the postcolonial. While this francophone postcolonial idea argues for less hegemonic visions of what the postcolonial has come to represent, it continues to be expressed via the anglophone world, creating a paradox that reinforces the real need for francophone critical perspectives
