DescriptionChanging her name early in her career because her parents disapproved of her writing, Jamaica Kincaid crossed audiences to embrace feminist, American, postcolonial and world literature. This book offers an introduction and guided overview of her characters, plots, humor, symbols, and classic themes. Designed for students, fans, librarians, and teachers, the 84 A-to-Z entries combine commentary from interviewers, feminist historians, and book critics with numerous citations from primary and secondary sources and comparative literature. The companion features a chronology of Kincaid's life, West Indies heritage and works, and includes a character name chart.
About AuthorAward-winning author Mary Ellen Snodgrass has written and compiled over 100 reference works and textbooks on such topics as American literature, mythology, fable, feminism and history, among others. She lives in Hickory, North Carolina.
