Caribbean Literature After Independence
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Trinidad, historically located at the crossroads of the Americas, has produced an incomparable national literature, fashioning genres that have informed the Caribbean region as a whole. One of the greatest contemporary Trinidadian writers is Earl Lovelace. His novelistic performative epics combine the rhythms of steelband and calypso with the narrative complexity of Faulkner. This is the first published volume to assess Lovelace's fiction and also his larger role in Caribbean letters.
