Between rose and hibiscus: The ambivalence of education in anglophone Caribbean fiction
This study applies Albert Memmi’s theories and reflections about the colonial relationship to 18 Anglophone Caribbean novels where education is a central theme. The novels chosen depict British West Indian schooling from the 1930s and onwards with the emphasis on the post-war period. The duality of the colonial situation in the British West Indies and the continuous struggle both outside and within the protagonists between the two systems are dealt with in depth in the novels analysed in this study.
