Masquerade: Caribbean Issue

Volume 3 Number 2

Masquerade Caribbean Issue


The contributions in this issue re-enact the dazzling array of colours and forms that are integral to the Caribbean masquerade. The issue’s specific concern is the re-reading and re-evaluation of Caribbean literature with attentiveness to the ‘lived realities’ of the region and to innovative experiments with language and form.
