Calypso Jews: Jewishness in the Caribbean Literary - download pdf or read online

By Sarah Phillips Casteel

With what could seem dazzling frequency, Caribbean writers have became to Jewish Caribbean reports of exodus and reinvention, from the arriving of Sephardic Jews expelled from Spain and Portugal within the 1490s to the flight of ecu Jewish refugees to Trinidad and in other places within the Nineteen Thirties. analyzing this historic migration in the course of the lens of postwar Caribbean fiction and poetry, Sarah Phillips Casteel conducts the 1st significant research of representations of Jewishness in Caribbean literature. Bridging the space among postcolonial and Jewish stories, Calypso Jews enriches crosscultural investigations of Caribbean creolization. Caribbean writers invoke either the 1492 expulsion and the Holocaust as a part of their literary archaeology of slavery and its legacies. regardless of the unequal and infrequently fraught family members among Blacks and Jews within the Caribbean prior to and after emancipation, Black-Jewish literary encounters mirror sympathy and id greater than antagonism and pageant. offering a substitute for U.S.-based severe narratives of Black-Jewish kin, Casteel reads Derek Walcott, Maryse Condé, Michelle Cliff, Jamaica Kincaid, Caryl Phillips, David Dabydeen, and Paul Gilroy, between others, to bare a particular inter-diasporic dating refracted in the course of the artistic techniques of 2 resilient cultures.
