This Creative/Critical Thesis explores locally generated pistemological frameworks as alternatives to metropolitan postcolonial ideas of literary analysis and production. Focusing on Kamau Brathwaite’s idea of the ‘tidalectic’, the Caribbean epistemologicaltraditions underpinning this idea are deeply sounded. Tidalectic methodologies of wrecking are examined as means for assimilating diverse cultural flotsam in a region characterized by migration and conquest. An accompanying book-length collection expresses and enacts the ideas of the critical thesis in the form of poetry.
