Synopsis

The Arrivants A New World Trilogy (Rights of Passage; Islands; Masks) by Edward K. Brathwaite

Here for the first time in a single volume is Edward Brathwaite's Caribbean trilogy - Rights of Passage, Masks, and Islands - a brilliant exploration of the predicament of the contemporary New World Negro. Through the tension of jazz/folk rhythm, through historical flashbacks, and excursions to Europe, New York and Africa, the poet interweaves the past and present of his Caribbean homeland - its natural beauty, its violent history, the values that sustain its people - into a vigorous and distinctive poetic statement.

Reviews

To my mind a major poem and a major work of New Literature in English....Braithwaite and Derek Walcott should be required reading in contemporary poetry. --Ashley Halpe, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
