Book cover
The Caribbean Woman Writer as Scholar
Creating, Imagining, Theorizing
Keshia N. Abraham with a Preface by Carole Boyce Davies
Caribbean / African Diaspora Series
Book details:
What does it mean to be a Caribbean woman writer? Shall I write about being from the Caribbean or about being a woman?...And in what ways am I to differentiate being a writer from being a scholar? Should any such differentiation be made?

The first volume in The Caribbean / African Diaspora Series, this collection of incisive and provocative essays by a range of writers addresses this question posed by noted author Myriam Chancy in her chapter. The wide variety of perspectives and literary approaches convey the immediacy of the contributors responses.
