Creole Renegades: Rhetoric of Betrayal and Guilt in the Caribbean Diaspora

by Bénédicte Boisseron

Sell-outs. Opportunists. Traitors. Exiled Caribbean writers—this book looks at Edwidge Danticat, Jamaica Kincaid, V. S. Naipaul, Maryse Condé, Dany Laferriére, and more—are often viewed by their home islands as disloyal to their origins. At the same time, their works have been well received in their adopted North American countries. Creole Renegades contends that modern diaspora authors tend to express their distance from Caribbean culture, as well as their creative freedom, through themes of guilt and betrayal that show up again and again in their works.
