Ramabai Espinet's The Swinging Bridge as a Refunctioning of Neil Bissoondath's A Casual Brutality and The Worlds Within Her

Abstract : This study proposes a reading of Ramabai Espinet's The Swinging Bridge as an intertextual ''refunctioning'' of issues dealt with by Neil Bissoondath in A Casual Brutality and The Worlds Within Her. Through a comparative analysis of the two novelists' treatments of memory, this article argues for a reading of The Swinging Bridge as a refunctioning of Bissoondath's dystopian fictions that allows the diasporic subject to come to terms with a traumatic past and to map new transcultural spaces, reconnecting same and other.
