EN 642 The Search for Self and Identity in the West Indian Novel


The course traces the development of the West Indian novel from the 1930s to the present, focusing on the Caribbean’s search for self-definition. The novel reflects the growth of anti-colonial sentiment in the island societies, and the development of a philosophy that ranges from protest through Negritude and creolite to the present-day attempts at an Antillean literature and perspective.
