A history of literature in the Caribbean. Vol. 3 : Cross-cultural studies by A. James Arnold( )

14 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 1,552 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

Haiti and the United States : national stereotypes and the literary imagination by J. Michael Dash( Book )

"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
Edouard Glissant by J. Michael Dash( Book )

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

A wide-ranging work that explores two centuries of Caribbean literature from a comparative perspective.

Haiti and the United States by J. Michael Dash( )

3 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dash's book is a sophisticated and fascinating critical study of the clash of cultures illuminating many of the political positions taken by each country at crucial stages of history"--David Nicholls, Times Higher Education Supplement Imaginative literature, argues Michael Dash, does not merely reflect, but actively influences historical events. He demonstrates this by a close examination of the relations between Haiti and the United States through the imaginative literature of both countries. The West's mythification of Haiti is a strategy used to justify either ostracism or domination, a process traced here from the nineteenth-century until it emerges with a voyeuristic fierceness in the 1960s
