An exploration of the literature of the English-speaking Caribbean (Antigua, Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, and Trinidad). Emphasis is placed on the ways in which this literature deals with the experience of slavery, colonization, and independence and the ways in which it treats such issues and themes as regional identity, color, race, class, gender, and family relations. Attention is also given to the ways in which the literature and culture of the Caribbean makes use of such cultural elements as Carnival and vernacular Africanized English known as patois and creole.
