About this product
- DescriptionIn Migrant Modernism , J. Dillon Brown examines the intersection between British literary modernism and the foundational West Indian vels that emerged in London after World War II. By emphasising the location in which anglophone Caribbean writers such as George Lamming, V. S. Naipaul, and Samuel Selvon produced and published their work, Brown reveals a dynamic convergence between modernism and postcolonial literature that has often been igred. Modernist techniques t only provided a way for these writers to mark their difference from the aggressively English, literalist aesthetic that dominated postwar literature in London but also served as a self-critical medium through which to treat themes of nationalism, cultural inheritance, and identity.
