Synopsis: "George Lamming was influenced by existing narrative structures and concerns of West Indian carnival forms to create his novel. An understanding of these forms is important for critiquing West Indian literature, and for better understanding social relations in the countries of the region. This study explores the similarities in strategies, devices and themes used by George Lamming in his much respected landmark Caribbean text 'In the Castle of My Skin', and several popular forms of the carnivalesque. It draws on Mikhail Bakhtin's model of the carnivalesque, supplementing it with borrowings from Kamau Brathwaite's model of creolisation, and from analyses made by others including Richard Burton and Curwen Best."

About the Author: Margaret D. Gill is a scholar, critic and published and performance poet teaching fundamentals of written english and language argument at The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus. Kamau Brathwaite describes her as “One of the very finest poets in the Caribbean – and not only in English. Brilliant (and therefore important) a literary critic as any (of the too few) writing out of the Caribbean today.” Twice winner of the Barbados Frank Collymore Literary Endowment Award, 1998 First Prize, and 2006 Second Prize to Kamau Brathwaite, Margaret Gill was International Visiting Writer 2007 at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKB) and one of two adjudicators of the HKB English Poetry Writing Competition 2007. She now holds the designation of Honorary Fellow in Writing by HKB.
