New PDF release: Afro-Greeks: Dialogues between Anglophone Caribbean

By Emily Greenwood

Afro-Greeks examines the reception of Classics within the English-speaking Caribbean, from approximately 1920 to the start of the twenty first century. Emily Greenwood makes a speciality of the ways that Greco-Roman antiquity has been positioned to artistic use in Anglophone Caribbean literature, and relates this local classical culture to the tutorial context, in particular the way Classics used to be taught within the colonial institution curriculum. Discussions of Caribbean literature
tend to imagine an hostile courting among Classics, that is taken care of as a legacy of empire, and Caribbean literature. whereas acknowledging the significance of this imperial context, Greenwood argues that Caribbean appropriations of Classics performed a big position in formulating original,
anti-colonial and anti-imperial feedback in Anglophone Caribbean fiction. Afro-Greeks unearths how, within the 20th century, generations of Caribbean writers, together with Kamau Brathwaite, Austin Clarke, John Figueroa, C. L. R. James, V. S. Naipaul, Derek Walcott and Eric Williams, created a particular, neighborhood counter-tradition of studying Greco-Roman Classics.
