Caribbean Literature in Transition ambitiously redefines received ideas of this region's literary traditions to present a significantly expanded terrain for critical intervention. By extending the chronology back to 1800, before either the Caribbean or literature had been imagined in their present currencies, challenging narrow definitions of literary production, and reaching across linguistic divides, the critical interventions that comprise this series deliver a substantially new framework for future study and research. This series attends to transformations in genre, language, form, and platform as well as to the intricate creative intersections between oral, performative and literary cultures, the intensity of cultural encounters and exchanges that have forged creolized sensibilities, and the complex patterning of local and global diasporas that have remained central to Caribbean experience and have continued to shape the production and reception of its writings.
