Helen Scott approaches contemporary Caribbean women's writing in the context of global and local economic forces. Considering each text within its national historical and cultural origins while acknowledging regional and international patterns, Scott examines the dynamics of imperialism and illuminates the specific aesthetic qualities that reach beyond the confines of geography and history in the work of such writers as Oonya Kempadoo, Jamaica Kincaid, Edwidge Danticat, Pauline Melville, and Janice Shinebourne.
