A wide-ranging work that explores two centuries of Caribbean literature from a comparative perspective. While haunted by the need to establish cultural difference and authenticity, Caribbean thought is inherently modernist in its recognition of the interplay between cultures, brought about by centuries of contact, domination, and consent.

MEDIA REVIEWS

In this thoroughly researched new book, J. Michael Dash examines the question of self-definition in the Caribbean. Beginning in nineteenth-century Haiti and ending in today's Martinique, Dash analyzes he achievements and shortcomings of some of the most important literary efforts in their attempts to come to terms with the region's characteristics- plantation origins, unfinished modernity, sociocultural heterogeneity, liminality, and archipelagic instability.

--Antonio Benitez-Rojo, Amherst College
