Abstract

This article considers the comparative merits of ‘queer’ and ‘creolization’ reading models in relation to representations of desire between women in selected Caribbean texts. It argues for a creolizing hermeneutics as a more enabling interpretive model and offers readings of texts by Allfrey, Kincaid and Kempadoo to demonstrate these possibilities.
