By Emily Greenwood

Afro-Greeks examines the reception of Classics within the English-speaking Caribbean, from approximately 1920 to the start of the twenty first century. Emily Greenwood specializes in the ways that Greco-Roman antiquity has been placed to inventive use in Anglophone Caribbean literature, and relates this local classical culture to the tutorial context, particularly the best way Classics used to be taught within the colonial college curriculum. Discussions of Caribbean literature
tend to imagine an adverse courting among Classics, that's handled as a legacy of empire, and Caribbean literature. whereas acknowledging the significance of this imperial context, Greenwood argues that Caribbean appropriations of Classics performed a huge position in formulating original,
anti-colonial and anti-imperial feedback in Anglophone Caribbean fiction. Afro-Greeks unearths how, within the 20th century, generations of Caribbean writers, together with Kamau Brathwaite, Austin Clarke, John Figueroa, C. L. R. James, V. S. Naipaul, Derek Walcott and Eric Williams, created a particular, local counter-tradition of examining Greco-Roman Classics.
