My question for the critics of Caribbean writing:
What are the patterns in Caribbean literature?
It is not necessary, in fact I think it is rare, that a story teller or a writer be a wise person. What is essential is that the writer be able to create a trustworthy pattern, a pattern in the modern idiom that serves the reader in her effort to remember who she is, and where she is going.
Too narrow, or perhaps too arbitrary a definition of 'wise'? I think that a person who can and does create a 'trustworthy pattern" is a wise person...
Pam, I will add this to the mix... I am thinking through all of this.
