Book Description

This pioneering study surveys nineteenth- and twentieth-century narratives of the West Indies written by white women, English and Creole. It introduces a fascinating wealth of relatively unknown material and constitutes a timely interrogation of the supposed homogeneity of Caribbean discourse, especially with regard to 'race' and gender.
