Description

This seminal collection of critical and historical essays by Sylvia Wynter brilliantly explores a wide range of subjects, including literature, critical discourse, race, class, and gender in relation to cultural production in the Caribbean. Individual essays focus on topics such as Bob Marley's anticolonial song, Jamaican folk arts, and the Spanish epoch of Jamaican history with a pioneering study of Bernardo de Balbuena. Across this range of topics there is a coherent thread of argument in favor of Marxist-humanist discourse that seeks to draw on all strands of Caribbean ethnic heritage while calling for the recognition and overturning of all inequalities between Caribbean peoples in the economic and cultural sphere.
