About the Authors
  • Keith Sandiford's study examines the importance of sugar as a central metaphor in the work of six influential authors of the colonial West Indies. Sugar, he argues, became a focus for cultural desires as well as a hard fact of the Caribbean's political economy. Sandiford defines this metaphorical turn as a trope of "negotiation" that organizes the structure and content of the narratives. Based on extensive historical knowledge of the period and recent postcolonial theory, this book suggests the possibilities negotiation offers in the continuing recovery of West Indian intellectual history.

    • Provides critical readings of six influential writers of colonial West Indies
    • Based on extensive historical knowledge as well as postcolonial theory
    • Focuses on a period and area relatively understudied; should generate great interest among scholars on colonial discourse and postcolonial theory
