The Caribbean Woman Writer as Scholar
Creating, Imagining, Theorizing
Keshia N. Abraham with a Preface by Carole Boyce Davies
Caribbean / African Diaspora Series
Book review:
This dynamic resource offers several outstanding chapters on creative theorizing (what it means to be a Caribbean writer and scholar) and one on the visual art of Hersza Barjon ...essays on West Indian and Francophone writers, and interviews with Sylvia Wynter and Erna Brodber....Abraham includes Myriam Chancy's keynote address, which sets a high standard for literary autobiography as Chancy takes her audience on a journey of creative growth and scholarly achievement....Hers is a personal history focused on 'belonging' : socially, historically, academically, and artistically....Focusing on issues of audience and authenticity, Chancy renders a powerful message....Especially valuable for women's studies scholarship."
