John Joseph Maria Figueroa (4 August 1920 – 5 March 1999) was a Jamaican poet and educator. He played a significant role in the development of Anglophone Caribbean literature both as a poet and an anthologist. He contributed to the development of the University College of the West Indies as an early member of staff, and had a parallel career as a broadcaster, working for various media organizations including the BBC. He also taught in Jamaica, Britain, the United States, Africa and Puerto Rico.
rnHis own poetry "reflects his origins as a Jamaican of descent and a Catholic who, whilst deeply committed to the Caribbean, was concerned to maintain heritage without apology.
I actually have read these two volumes in fairly good detail and have a strong formal background in NT scholarship. I think this is the main strength of the 2 volume set. The fact that he spends the first 363 or so pages on a very careful, thoughtful introduction to John is also a real strength.
This history for the first time charts the literature of the entire Caribbean, the islands as well as continental littoral, as one cultural region. It breaks new ground in establishing a common grid for reading literatures that have been kept separate by their linguistic frontiers. The History of Literature in the Caribbean brings together the most distinguished team of literary Caribbeanists ever assembled, cutting across ideological.
