About this book

During and after the two World Wars, a cohort of Caribbean authors migrated to the UK and France. Dissecting writers like Lamming, Césaire, and Glissant, McIntosh reveals how these Caribbean writers were pushed to represent themselves as authentic spokesmen for their people, coming to represent the concerns of the emigrant intellectual community.

Reviews

“This project makes a significant contribution to the diasporic Caribbean community and the reinvention of various disciplines well beyond the Caribbean through the work of feminist scholars. … McIntosh does succeed in analysing the French reading public very well within the French field for French Caribbean writing. His intellectual grasp of the histories of both the Francophone and Anglophone Caribbean literature during French Guiana, Guadeloupe and Martinique’s war era is pioneering.” (Marquise Émilie du Châtelet, Avello publishing Journal, Vol. 5 (1), January, 2015)
