Migrant Modernism

In Migrant Modernism, J. Dillon Brown examines the intersectionbetween British literary modernism and the foundational West Indian novels that emerged in Londonafter World War II. By emphasizing the location in which anglophone Caribbean writers such as GeorgeLamming, V. S. Naipaul, and Samuel Selvon produced and published their work, Brown reveals a dynamicconvergence between modernism and postcolonial literature that has often been ignored. Modernisttechniques not only provided a way for these writers to mark their difference from the aggressivelyEnglish, literalist aesthetic that dominated postwar literature in London but also served as aself-critical medium through which to treat themes of nationalism, cultural inheritance, andidentity.
