THE FORMATION OF FEMALE MIGRATORY SUBJECTS IN EDWIDGE DANTICAT'S KRIK? KRAK!
MetadataShow full item record
This paper theorizes Edwidge Danticat's book Krick? Krack! within the Black Atlantic framework which Danticat supplements with her focus on the Caribbean region and female experience, absent from Gilroy's agenda. She goes against the grain of contemporary postcolonial criticism by demonstrating that the achievement of positive female subjectivity is not contingent on exile. Dislocation is not regarded as a virtue in itself, and readers are reminded that the Black Atlantic is and has always been a place of perilous human traffic.
