Creole Renegades: Rhetoric of Betrayal and Guilt in the Caribbean Diaspora:
In #Creole Renegades, Bénédicte Boisseron looks at exiled #Caribbean authors Edwidge Danticat, Jamaica Kincaid, V.S.Naipaul, Maryse Condé, Dany Laferriére, and more whose works have been well re¬ceived in their adopted North American countries but who are often viewed by their home islands as sell-outs, opportunists, or traitors.
These expatriate and second-generation authors refuse to be simple bearers of #CaribbeanCulture, often dramatically distanc¬ing themselves from the #postcolonial archipelago. Their writing is frequently infused with an enticing sense of cultural, sexual, or racial #emancipation, but their deviance is not defiant.
Underscoring the typically ignored contentious relationship between modern diaspora authors and the Caribbean, Boisseron ultimately argues that displacement and creative autonomy are of¬ten manifest in guilt and betrayal, central themes that emerge again and again in the work of these writers.
