Overview

Tracing the transnational and racial meanings of creole identity, Judith Raiskin looks at four English-speaking writers from South Africa and the Caribbean: Zoe Wicomb, Olive Schreiner, Jean Rhys, and Michelle Cliff. She examines their work in light of the discourses of their times: nineteenth-century 'race science' and imperialistic rhetoric, turn-of-the-century anti-Semitic sentiment and feminist pacifism, postcolonial theory, and apartheid legislation.
