Perspectives on Naipaul

Created in the West Indies: Caribbean Perspectives on V.S. Naipaul, ed. Jennifer Rahim and Barbara Lalla, a collection of essays from a symposium and lecture series at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine, in 2007, commemorating the seventy-fifth birthday of Trinidad’s most famous literary figure. No writer has vexed Caribbean critics more utterly — indeed deliberately — than Naipaul. The thirteen essays here reflect a half-century of debate over his subjects and themes, his style and authorial stance, and his life and personality as well. They range from Edward Baugh on Naipaul’s “Making and Self-Making” to Gordon Rohlehr on “The Confessional Element in Naipaul’s Fiction” to Bridget Brereton on “Naipaul’s Sense of History”.
