Jean Rhys by Elaine Savory( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1,366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean Rhys has long been central to debates in feminist, modernist, Caribbean, British and post-colonial writing. Elaine Savory's study, which refers widely to Rhys criticism and goes beyond it, is a critical reading of Rhys's entire ouevre, including the stories and autobiography, and is informed by recently released unpublished manuscripts by Rhys. Designed both for the serious scholar and those unfamiliar with Rhys's writing, Savory's book insists on the importance of a Caribbean-centred approach to Rhys, and shows how this context profoundly affects her literary style."--Jacket
The Cambridge introduction to Jean Rhys by Elaine Savory( )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since her death in 1979, Jean Rhys’s reputation as an important modernist author has grown. Her finely crafted prose fiction lends itself to multiple interpretations from radically different critical perspectives; formalism, feminism, and postcolonial studies among them. This Introduction offers a reliable and stimulating account of her life, work, contexts and critical reception. Her masterpiece, Wide Sargasso Sea, is analyzed together with her other novels, including Quartet and After Leaving Mr Mackenzie, and her short stories. Through close readings of the works, Elaine Savory reveals their common themes and connects these to different critical approaches. The book maps Rhys’s fictional use of the actual geography of Paris, London and the Caribbean, showing how key understanding her relationships with the metropolitan and colonial spheres is to reading her texts. In this invaluable introduction for students, Savory explains the significance of Rhys as a writer both in her lifetime and today."--pub. desc

Kamau Brathwaite's Middle passages : a lecture by Kamau Brathwaite( Recording )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Middle passages is at once history and poetry, literary criticism and cultural witness. Skillfully blending the oral and scribal traditions of the Caribbean, Kamau Brathwaite illuminates a global backdrop of multiple migrations and works through a torturous and traumatic history of cultural confrontations and contacts against which the explosions, catastrophes, and hope of the region and its Diaspora are played out ... Equally attuned to the problems and promise of the Caribbean, to the failures and achievements of the region's intellectuals and visionaries, Brathwaite calls on Caribbean creative writers at home and abroad and on critics of the literature to bear the responsibility of giving the region and its scattered peoples a voice and a mirror in which to see themselves. This is a stirring call to use the power of words to refashion the Caribbean and its future."--Container
