In this groundbreaking collection of essays, scholars from the Caribbean and scholars who focus on Caribbean studies take a fresh look at Jamaica Kincaid's recent fiction and non-fiction, focusing on themes in her work that have become part of recent theoretical discourse, from the history of conquest in the Caribbean, to the identity of the post-colonial subject, the effects of imperialism, and the double consciousness of the diasporic writer. Contributors draw upon the theories of Homi Bhabha, Jacques Lacan, Jacques Derrida, and Edouard Glissant to read in exciting new ways texts such as "A Small Place" (1988), "Lucy" (1990), "The Autobiography of My Mother" (1995), "My Brother" (1997), "My Garden" (Book): (1999), "Mr. Potter" (2002), and "Among Flowers: A Walk in the Himalayas" (2005). Linda Lang-Peralta is Associate Professor of English at The Metropolitan State College of Denver.
