Spring 2009 not offered
This course will examine the work of these three major authors from the postcolonial/Third World. Each has produced a major corpus of writing and achieved recognition and status. Cesaire is the éminence grise of the Francophone Caribbean, Rushdie the darling of the postmodernists, and Naipaul, while routinely vilified for his politics, is the 2001 Nobel Prize winner for literature. We will examine the concerns of each, both as master stylists and as passionate critics of the Third and First worlds.
