Contemporary Caribbean women's poetry: making style
bookposted on 2023-06-08, 07:42 authored by Denise Decaires Narain
This book comprises the first sustained account of Caribbean women¿s poetry and provides detailed readings of poems by women poets whose work to date has received comparatively little critical attention. These readings are contextualized both within Caribbean cultural debates and postcolonial and feminist critical discourses. The book explores the gendered implications of nationalist cultural debates and assesses the distinction between `the oral¿ and `the scribal¿ which these debates were focused around and considers the critical issues raised by the performance of raced and gendered identities in poetic discourse. It concludes with a discussion and critique of the category, `Caribbean women¿s writing¿.
