Editorial Reviews

Review

A lucid and compelling comparative study of Caribbean literary production and its historical background over two centuries. Dalleo’s command of a variety of writers and detailed engagement with secondary material is impressive. A remarkable critical synthesis that could inspire more comparative work.

(Rodrigo Lazo, University of California, Irvine author of Writing to Cuba: Filibustering and Cuban Exiles in the United States)

This valuable study succeeds in its quest to model a different approach to the archive; it provides an original and challenging way of reading some well-known works, some minor works, and literary movements that span the Caribbean.

(Sandra P. Paquet, University of Miami)

"A valuable contribution to Caribbean studies."
