Explorations in Sights and Sounds
There has been a steady stream of literary output from the Caribbean, much of which has been published first in England, and only later in the U.S. Although such fine writers as V.S. Naipaul, Edgar Mittelholzer, and George Lamming have produced noteworthy novels, relatively little criticism has been written. Therefore, these authors have all too frequently been overlooked in university offerings. That is not to say they have been totally disregarded, but that they have not been given the attention they deserve. For this reason, Sandra Pouchet Paquet's book of criticism The Novels of George Lamming as the first of its kind is not only appropriate but long overdue.
