This module offers a broad survey of the Caribbean novel from the 1950s to the present. There is a vast body of work to read, though we will move through things slowly, reading very selectively. We will need to think where the Caribbean novel occurs (in the diaspora as much as in the Caribbean itself). And we will need to explore what specific characteristics underwrite the Caribbean form itself.
