Boek cover Continental Shelf van Fred DAguiar (Paperback)
Continental Shelf traces a journey, across continents and from youth to maturity. It moves from memories of childhood in Guyana, through a long elegiac exploration of the shootings at Virginia Tech University in 2006, to the reflective closing section which gives its title to the book. Fred D'Aguiar celebrates individuals and the histories embedded in places. He conjures up a sensuous childhood world of characters, stories, a loved particularity - a smell of bitumen, the local hero who comes last in a National Cycle Championship, a distant train's incantation of 'greenheart, mora, baromalli'...

Boek cover Caryl Phillips, David Dabydeen and Fred DAguiar van Abigail Ward (Hardcover)
Representations of Slavery
Slavery is a recurring subject in works by the contemporary black writers in Britain Caryl Phillips, David Dabydeen and Fred D'Aguiar, yet their return to this past arises from an urgent need to understand the racial anxieties of twentieth- and twenty-first-century Britain. This book examines the ways in which their literary explorations of slavery may shed light on current issues in Britain today, or what might be thought of as the continuing legacies of the UK's largely forgotten slave past. In this highly original study of contemporary postcolonial literature, Abigail Ward explores a range...

Boek cover The Imagery of Sea and Land in Fred DAguiars Feeding the Ghosts van Marco Sievers (Paperback)
Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Hannover (Englisches Seminar), course: HS Caribbean Literature and Culture, 26 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: (...) The novel belongs to the genre of the Caribbean novels, and, as a historical fiction about the slave trade, provocatively combines historical and imaginative elements.

Boek cover Testimony and the Trauma of Slavery in Fred DAguiars Novels van Kevin Heyeres (Paperback)
"The Longest Memory" and "Feeding The Ghosts" : a Voyage into History, Memory and Identity
This work is an analysis of the fictional testimonies of some of Fred D'Aguiar's outstanding novel protagonists who experienced the dreadful ordeal of the slave trade and who have undertaken to share the burden of recall. All the protagonists, whites, blacks, oppressors, and the subaltern convey their stories to the readers under the form of written accounts in prose, of poems, of thoughts, and of memories. I strive here to dissect the different traumata these characters have gone through and see which impact these have had on their identities, on the way they try to understand and fit into a...

Boek cover Mama Dot van Fred DAguiar (Onbekend)
Every once in a while, a new poet appears who makes us feel that the contours of contemporary poetry have been significantly changed. Fred D'aguiar is such a poet. Although still in his early twenties, he already has a wholly independent voice, and a powerful grasp of original and strange subjects. Many of these arise from his childhood in Guyana: the first section of Mama Dot comprises a series in which these early years are recalled with a passionately lyrical evocation of landscapes, incidents and family relations. They are sensuous celebrations, but are nevertheless touched with...

Boek cover Translations from Memory van Fred DAguiar (Paperback)
The memories from which Fred D'Aguiar translates these poems are cultural and personal, from the anciencies of the Gilgamesh epic to the modern world, from classical philosophy to C.L.R. James and Aime Cesaire, from Asia and Europe to the new world in which their destinies are unpredictably worked out. D'Aguiar's concluding translations are of Derek Walcott and Kamau Brathwaite, masters and remakers of language and form, from whom (among a multitude of others) he takes his bearings. This unusual integration of tributes and the ironies they provoke give Translations a radical colouring:...
