Write Black, Write British examines the new Black British writers in Britain, writing about Britain from a specific British perspective - inscribed in Black. This collection of essays puts the work of British born writers of African and Caribbean parentage, who published first collections in the late eighties and nineties, under a magnifying glass.
Themes of alienation, belonging, gender politics, identity, language, madness, and race reverberate yet with a peculiar variance than that of post colonial writers. Included are essays on Diran Adebayo, Patience Agbadi, Bernardine Evaristo, Jackie Kay, Andrea Levy, Courttia Newland, Leone Ross, Dorothea Smartt, Zadie Smith and Benjamin Zephaniah.
It provides the interested reader of English social history, Black (African / Caribbean) history in Britain, contemporary British literature, British culture, comparative literature, world literature, post colonial literature and folklore, with contributions from scholars and writers from Europe and the USA.
