Her Read

Jennifer Sperry Steinorth

Writing the Caribbean in Magazine Time

Katerina Gonzalez Seligmann

This book demonstrates the material, political, and aesthetic dimensions of Pan-Caribbean literary discourse in magazine texts by Suzanne and AimÉ CÉsaire, NicolÁs GuillÉn, JosÉ Lezama Lima, Alejo Carpentier, George Lamming, Derek Walcott and their contemporaries. Thus far, the canonical centrality of literary magazines to Caribbean literature, politics, and social theory has been obscured.
