The study deals with aspects of the experiences of Black peoples in Africa, Europe and the Americas that resulted from the transatlantic slave trade and slavery.

Created in the West Indies: Caribbean Perspectives on V.S. Naipaul

Price
66.55 BBD

"Created in the West Indies: Caribbean Perspectives on V.S. Naipaul updates and furthers the debates on the life and work of an internationally acclaimed writer, Nobel laureate and native son of Trinidad and Tobago. The book draws together the proceedings of a series of outstanding public lectures and an academic symposium that featured a distinguished cadre of Caribbean scholars who, during 2007, participated in a year-long schedule of activities initiated by the University of the West Indies, St Augustine campus, to honour the life and work of this highly accomplished 'enigma' of Caribbean letters. The essays in this collection are organised into three sections that represent a compression of the multifaceted range of V.S. Naipaul's creative concerns, thematic explorations, even obsessions, and philosophical persuasions. The singular power of these contributions is their ability to push at the borders of Naipaul scholarship, cutting new pathways for considering this most intriguing creative mind and offering fresh perspectives on the now familiar themes of postcolonial identity and nationalism, the fiction of history and history of fiction, home and belonging in a world characterised by flux, movement and cultural contact. Controversy has always companioned Naipaul's career. Not surprisingly, some of the contributions are unrelentingly honest in their exposé of Naipaul for his trademark impatience with the very societies that created his unique sensibility and his propensity for self-contradiction.

Cymbals Of Tree Rings

Price
30.00 BBD

On an island in the Caribbean Sea, a breathtaking backdrop provides inspiration. In her collection of fresh, engaging verse, poet Audrey Atherley shares imagery that provides a unique perspective into the landscape of Barbados as well as what it is like to live as a West Indian in New York.

Atherley paints a colourful picture of Barbados life - the shouts of the market vendor, the songs of birds, the smell of raw fish and sea eggs, and the sight of the fishing boats at Skeetes Bay. She also explores the feelings she experienced while attempting to acclimate to life in America, as the spring trees bloomed in Madison Square Garden and leaves changed colour along the New Jersey Turnpike. Joy, sadness, and a sense of overriding hope connect Atherley's personal recollections and transform them into relatable poems that genuinely express a multitude of emotions.

Celebrating life in a variety of ways, "Cymbals of Tree Rings" reflects the sights and sounds of a Caribbean island and the thoughts and experiences of a West Indian poet in the United States.

Daddy Sharpe

Price
68.25 BBD

Daddy Sharpe is a unique work of Caribbean fiction. It is the result of five years of historical research, details of which have been used to recreate a narrative of the life of one of Jamaica's National Heroes, Samuel Sharpe. Locked in prison, awaiting a sentence of certain execution, Samuel Sharpe retells the story of his life in the first person narrative, beginning with his boyhood days at Cooper's Hill in St James and ending with his surrender to the authorities after his defeat in the Great Jamaican Slave Revolt of 1831. These flashbacks are interwoven with present time musings while he is in prison. The reader becomes immediately engaged in the character of the hero and his struggles for spiritual and physical freedom but is also fascinated by the descriptions and historical details of life in Jamaica in the early nineteenth century.
