Contemporary Caribbean Writing and Deleuze

Contemporary Caribbean Writing andDeleuze maps anew intellectual and literary history of postcolonial Caribbean writing andthought spanning from the 1930s surrealist movement to the present,crossing the region's language blocs,and focused on the interconnected principles of creativity and commemoration.Exploring the work of Ren' M'nil, 'douard Glissant, Wilson Harris, DerekWalcott, Antonio Ben'tez-Rojo, Pauline Melville, Robert Antoni and NaloHopkinson, this study reveals the explicit and implicit engagement withDeleuzian thought at work in contemporary Caribbean writing.Uniting for the first time two majorschools of contemporary thought - postcolonialism and post-continentalphilosophy - this study establishes anew and innovative critical discourse for Caribbean studies and postcolonialtheory beyond the oppositional dialectic of colonizer and colonized. Drawingfrom Deleuze's writings on Bergson, Nietzsche and Spinoza, this studyinterrogates the postcolonial tropes of newness, becoming, relationality and aphilosophical concept of immanence that lie at the heart of a little-observeddialogue between contemporary Caribbean writers and Deleuze.
