    EBOOK DOWNLOAD Cambridge I was assigned this book in college and recently realized that I never finished it so I went back and re read it It's a complicated little book The vast majority of it is told in the first person from the perspective of the spinster daughter of an increasingly indebted British landowner She is sent to inspect his sugar plantation in the British West Indies and the majority of the novel is written in the form of her diary recording her exper

Read è eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ç Caryl Phillips characters Cambridge ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Dly Christian sense of justice is about to cost him his life In Cambridge one of England's most highly acclaimed young novelists tells their stories with an uncanny authenticity of voice and juxtapose. Some of the other reviewers seem to be confused by aspects of this book First of all it is set at the time between the banning of the slave trade and the emancipation of all slaves ie a time when cargoes were no longer lawfully coming out of Africa but it was still lawful to own existing slaves in plantations Secondly Emily Cartwright is not travelling alone she has her companion Isabella who dies on the journey out Those are not the mysteries of the story The real mysteries are the ones that exist in the gaps between sections of each version of the narrative for example the moment where Emily begins to refer to Mr Brown as Arnold In one of these gaps there occurs the moment that causes the events recorded in the final section and it s an open uestion for the reader where that occurs and who is responsible That will also affect how you interpret other aspects of the different accounts and the varying honesty of the testimoniesI remember reading reviews of this book when it was published At that time relativism and uncertainty were all the rage amongst the reviewers there was a vogue for novels like Mr Wroe s Virgins and Poor Things that play with and maybe commit to the idea that there is no truth above conflicting narratives of events Perhaps Cambridge belongs in that strand I can t be sure

You don t get the narrative you want but you get the narrative you need This is not a book that will follow the formulas and conventions you are accustomed to I will say I disagree with the review on the cover I don t feel this is a fast paced novel rather it is slow and thoughtful meditative and frustrating Caryl Phillips doesn t give you a white washed self congratulatory version of history He makes you look at the parts you want to forget the vile ugly ones you want to gloss over in favor of the brighter if they can be considered such points We want forget the philosophical and scientific racism that the racist whites used to justify their treatment of African slaves We want forget the social death imposed on blacks when they were ripped from their families and land of origin We want to forget the way that they were denied any future by their white masters When we whites think of ourselves as having done the right thing by ending chattel slavery it s too easy to think we ve done enough It s important to know and understand the undergirding ideas that supported slavery because so many of them are still present today We don t see them because like the diarist in part 1 of the novel we are blinded by our privilege and our social power Phillips makes us look at it rubs our faces in it and we can t look away He doesn t give us redemption He doesn t give us a white savior This novel is so relevant today It was avant garde for its time early 90s But now in 2020 we can see the effects of not looking deeply at our past and being too uick to pat ourselves on the back So much of the same oppression continues It is baked into our economics and our politics and our communities and our relationships So is this a fun read no But it s a necessary one And in case the novel feels made up or too extreme for some sensibilities all of it was taken sometimes word for word from travel journals from that time period
