The Routledge Reader in Caribbean Literatureis an outstanding compilation of over seventy primary and secondary texts of writing from the Caribbean. Locating key writers within a specifically Caribbean framework, the editors Alison Donnell and Sarah Lawson Welsh demonstrate that these singular voices have emerged not out of a cultural void or sparse literary background, but out of a wealth of literary tradition which until now was unknown or critically neglected.
Writers from 1900 to the present, both famous and less well-known, are given a voice in this remarkable anthology which encompasses poetry, short stories, essays, articles and interviews. Amongst the many represented here are:
* C.L.R. James
* George Lamming
* Jean Rhys
* Benjamin Zephaniah
* Claude McKay
* Jamaica Kincaid
* Sylvia Wynter
* Derek Walcott
* David Dabydeen
* Grace Nichols
The editors provide an accessible historical and cultural introduction to the writings, making this volume an ideal teaching tool as well as a fascinating collection for anyone interested in the literature of the Caribbean.
