  • Pathologies of Paradiseby Supriya M. Nair

    University of Virginia Press 2013; US$ 27.50

    Pathologies of Paradise presents the rich complexity of anglophone Caribbean literature from pluralistic perspectives that contest the reduction of the region to Edenic or infernal stereotypes. But rather than reiterate the familiar critiques of these stereotypes, Supriya Nair draws on the trope of the detour to plumb the depths of anti-paradise discourse,... more...

  • Race, Romance, and Rebellionby Colleen C. O'Brien

    University of Virginia Press 2013; US$ 24.50

    As in many literatures of the New World grappling with issues of slavery and freedom, stories of racial insurrection frequently coincided with stories of cross-racial romance in nineteenth-century U.S. print culture. Colleen O?Brien explores how authors such as Harriet Jacobs, Elizabeth Livermore, and Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda imagined the expansion of... more...

  • Family Mattersby Marisel C. Moreno

    University of Virginia Press 2012; US$ 27.50

    Adopting a comparative and multidisciplinary approach to Puerto Rican literature, Marisel Moreno juxtaposes narratives by insular and U.S. Puerto Rican women authors in order to examine their convergences and divergences. By showing how these writers use the trope of family to question the tenets of racial and social harmony, an idealized past, and... more...

  • Disturbers of the Peaceby Kelly Baker Josephs

    University of Virginia Press 2013; US$ 24.50

    Exploring the prevalence of madness in Caribbean texts written in English in the mid-twentieth century, Kelly Baker Josephs focuses on celebrated writers such as Jean Rhys, V. S. Naipaul, and Derek Walcott as well as on understudied writers such as Sylvia Wynter and Erna Brodber. Because mad figures appear frequently in Caribbean literature from... more...

  • Sounding the Breakby Jason Frydman

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 24.50

    The idea of "world literature" has served as a crucial though underappreciated interlocutor for African diasporic writers, informing their involvement in processes of circulation, translation, and revision that have been identified as the hallmarks of the contemporary era of world literature. Yet in spite of their participation in world systems before... more...

  • The Cross-Dressed Caribbeanby Maria Cristina Fumagalli; Bénédicte Ledent; Roberto del Valle Alcalá

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    Studies of sexuality in Caribbean culture are on the rise, focusing mainly on homosexuality and homophobia or on regional manifestations of normative and nonnormative sexualities. The Cross-Dressed Caribbean extends this exploration by using the trope of transvestism not only to analyze texts and contexts from anglophone, francophone, Spanish,... more...

  • Bodies and Bonesby Tanya L. Shields

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 24.50

    In Bodies and Bones, Tanya Shields argues that a repeated engagement with the Caribbean?s iconic and historic touchstones offers a new sense of (inter)national belonging that brings an alternative and dynamic vision to the gendered legacy of brutality against black bodies, flesh, and bone. Using a distinctive methodology she calls "feminist rehearsal"... more...

  • Locating the Destituteby Stanka Radovic

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 24.50

    While postcolonial discourse in the Caribbean has drawn attention to colonialism?s impact on space and spatial hierarchy, Stanka Radovi? asks both how ordinary people as "users" of space have been excluded from active and autonomous participation in shaping their daily spatial reality and how they challenge this exclusion. In a comparative interdisciplinary... more...

  • The Pan American Imaginationby Stephen M. Park

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 27.50

    In the history of the early twentieth-century Americas, visions of hemispheric unity flourished, and the notion of a transnational American identity was embraced by artists, intellectuals, and government institutions. In The Pan American Imagination, Stephen Park explores the work of several Pan American modernists who challenged the body of knowledge... more...
