Sam Vásquez is an assistant professor of English at Dartmouth College.

Review:

"Recommended." - Choice

"Humor remains classed, gendered, and very serious business in Caribbean literary spheres, perhaps because of the acute self-consciousness of the region's middle class about being perceived as respectable and/or modern. Vasquez' study crosses canonical and generic borders in unexpected ways - a novel by Hurston, the poetry of Bennett and McKay, the plays of Walcott and Césaire, in the same conversation. This offers us unexpected and refreshing juxtapositions, and prompts new questions and perspectives." - Faith Smith, Brandeis University

"An extraordinarily insightful book on the delightful topic of Caribbean literary humor. Vasquez makes us think hard about the transformative power of laughter." - Lawrence La Fountain-Stokes, University of Michigan, author of Queer Ricans: Cultures and Sexualities in the Diaspora

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 222 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.5in. x 0.7in.Humor in the Caribbean Literary Canon intimately examines writers, such as Louise Bennett, Aim Csaire, Junot Daz, Zora Neale Hurston, Derek Walcott, and Anthony Winkler, who engage humor to challenge representations of people of African descent within canonical Western texts and forms. Vsquez uses the term literary crossing to account for appropriation practices particular to the Caribbean and performs critical analyses of contemporary trickster figures in such literature. Ultimately, this study shows that humor is used not just to survive and subvert the Western context, but as a form of self-production that opens up a space for bodies, discourses, and realities that had previously gone unrecognized or unappreciated.
