Winds of Change: The Transforming Voices of Caribbean Women Writers and Scholars

Synopsis

"Designed to continue the tradition of critical study and celebration of the literary products of Caribbean writers, Winds of Change features eighteen new essays written by writers and scholars of Caribbean literature. The volume was developed from the 1996 International Conference of Caribbean Women Writers and Scholars and includes original essays by Opal Palmer Adisa, Maryse Conde, Beryl A. Gilroy, Merle Hodge, Patricia Powel, Astrid H. Roemer, and Elaine Savory, among others. The writers speak to each other and to the audience on the ways in which Caribbean women writers influence their societies (cultural, political, social, economic) through their literature. The work also features a discussion of Afro-Brasilian writers who situate themselves as Caribbean in sensibility and content." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
