The Caribbean Oral Tradition : Literature, Performance, and Practice, Hardback Book

The Caribbean Oral Tradition : Literature, Performance, and Practice Hardback

Edited by Hanetha Vete-Congolo


The book uses an innovative prism of interorality that powerfully reevaluates Caribbean orality and innovatively casts light on its overlooked and fundamental epistemological contribution into the formation of Caribbean philosophy.

It defines the innovative prism of interorality as the systematic transposition of previously composed storytales into new and distinct tales.

The book offers a powerful consideration of the interconnections between Caribbean orality and Caribbean philosophy, especially as this pertains to aesthetics and ethics.

This is a new area of thought, a new methodological approach and a new conceptual paradigm and proposition to scholars, students, writers, artists and intellectuals who conceive and examine intellectual and cultural productions in the Black Atlantic world and beyond.
