Prospero's Isles is a collection of essays with a running theme: it traces how the Caribbean presence informs, in compelling and inescapable ways, the texture of the American imaginary. This presence is manifested in varied art forms such as architecture, music, literature and film.

In the case of literary art, Claude McKay initiated the Harlem Renaissance with the publication of Harlem Shadows in 1922. However few regard it as important to acknowledge that McKay was a Jamaican, the grandson of a slave. His guiding poetic principles made Jamaican folkways, its popular culture, and a distinctly Caribbean sense of rhythm, movement and imagery the stuff of modern poetry. Caribbean manifestations of music have equally imprinted a particular aesthetic on American pop culture; Caribbean film performers too have helped in opening social spaces within a racially charged atmosphere in the film industry.

These are but a few examples showing the undeniable fact that it is time the field of American studies re-conceive the Caribbean and the debate it proposes beyond the immediate realms most of the critical canon concedes.

Prospero's Isles: The Presence of the Caribbean in the American Imaginary intends to do just that. It is a book relevant for those interested in American and Caribbean studies alike.
