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 makes a speciality of the ways that Greco-Roman antiquity has been positioned to inventive use in Anglophone Caribbean literature, and relates this neighborhood classical culture to the tutorial context, in particular the way Classics was once taught within the colonial college curriculum. Discussions of Caribbean literature
tend to imagine an adversarial courting among Classics, that is 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 an incredible position in formulating original,
anti-colonial and anti-imperial feedback in Anglophone Caribbean fiction. Afro-Greeks finds 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.
