The Caribbean Woman Writer as Scholar: Creating, Imagining, Theorizing
by Keshia N. Abraham, editor
with a Preface by Carole Boyce Davies
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.
