Remnants of Conquest

Peter Hulme

Oxford University Press

This book aims to take travel writing seriously as an object of scholarly attention. To that end, it has attempted to bring techniques of literary analysis to travel writing, has researched travel writers whose work has previously been given little attention, and has tried to understand the body of modern travel writing about the Caribs in Dominica. It has given particular weight to the late 19th-century contexts that produced the work of Frederick Ober in the United States and Hesketh Bell in Britain because of their key significance as founders of the modern discourse about the Caribs. However, the book has also chosen to emphasize the local context of the Carib Reserve itself, judging that special place, which cannot be understood in isolation from Dominica as a whole.

Keywords:   travel writing, literary analysis, travel writers, Caribs, Dominica, Frederick Ober, Hesketh Bell, Carib Reserve
