This study analyzes the postmodern aesthetics common to seven tales of slavery from the USA, Martinique and Guadeloupe, Cuba and Columbia. The seven texts are: Alejo Carpentier's "El reino de este mundo" (1949), Miguel Barnet's "Biografia de un cimarr on" (1966), Andr e Schwarz-Bart's "La mul atresse Solitude" (1972), Manuel Zapata Olivella's "Chang o, el gran putas" (1983), Maryse Cond e's "Moi, Tituba, sorci ere...noire de Salem" (1986), Toni Morrison's "Beloved" (1987) and Charles Johnson's "Middle Passage" (1990).
""Postmodern Tales of Slavery in the Americas attempts something that few literary critics have been in a position to do: to examine comparatively novels about slavery across the English, French, and Spanish literary traditions in the U.S. and the Caribbean."
