Reviews

"This study of Anglophone and Francophone writers in North America and the Caribbean enlarges our understanding of diaspora as a historical reality, and as a conceptual matter. Casteel integrates modes of visual perception and expression, and references to particular visual artists, into her discussion of literary works, thus enriching the comparative landscape she herself surveys. Walter Benjamin notes that in Baroque drama, "history merges into setting," and one learns that this is also the case in the literary works produced in this part of the Americas." -- Lois Parkinson Zamora, University of Houston"In this work Sarah Casteel brilliantly examines the relationship between people and place across the Americas. By privileging fixed geographical locations, she lucidly critiques the exaggerated emphasis on displacement in current cultural theory. Her sophisticated articulation of the postcolonial pastoral in the Americas is certain to make a major contribution to the field of New World Studies." -- J.Michael Dash, Professor of French, New York University -This study of Anglophone and Francophone writers in North America and the Caribbean enlarges our understanding of diaspora as a historical reality, and as a conceptual matter.
