Miraculous Weapons

Revolutionary Ideology in Caribbean Culture

Series:

Joy A. I. Mahabir

To revolutionary Caribbean artists who support liberation struggles, their works are «miraculous weapons», in Aimé Césaire’s poetic words. Pan-Caribbean and interdisciplinary in scope, this unique and original book analyzes a heterogeneous body of progressive texts: novels, poetry, visual art, and music, as well as the form that assembles them all – the Caribbean Carnival. By exploring the social, political, intellectual, and cultural complexity of the Caribbean, Joy A. I. Mahabir presents a new and compelling perspective on Caribbean studies that responds to and challenges recent work in this field.
