Celebrating Sam Selvon. Study/reviews of acclaimed Trinidadian writer. A celebration of the life and work of the internationally distinguished Trinidadian writer SAM SELVON. A founding father of the Caribbean literary renaissance of the 1950s, Sam Selvon’s writing is remarkable for its breadth of sympathy, its understanding of human suffering and love, its humour and its sensational and ground-breaking use of a creolized form of English. Included in the tribute are essays, articles and memoirs from fellow-writers, literary critics and contemporaries, alongside a selection of extracts from Sam Selvon’s work, which spans his writing career. The two editors (Susheila Nasta and Anna Rutherford) have both published widely in the field of Commonwealth and Post-Colonial Literature. Cover painting “Olmec Maya – the keeper of the Temple” is by the renowned Caribbean artist Aubrey Williams, 1984. A seminal book for those interested in or studying Caribbean literature, and other black colonial writing. Size: Octavo (standard book size). Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing.
