George Lamming
    When I review these relationships they seem so odd. I have always been here on this side and the other person there on that side, and we have both tried to make the sides appear similar in the needs, desires, and ambitions. But it wasn't true. It was never true. When I reach Trinidad where no one knows me I may be able to strike identity with the other person. But it was never possible here. I am always feeling terrified of being known; not because they really know you, but simply because their claim to knowledge is a concealed attempt to destroy you. That is what knowing means. As soon as they know you they will kill you, and thank God that's why they can't kill you. They can never know you. Sometimes I think the same thing will be true in Trinidad. The likenesses will meet and make merry, but they won't know you. They won't know the you that's hidden somewhere in the castle of your skin.
In the Castle of My Skin Biography G eorge Lamming was born on June 8, 1927 in Barbados where he attended Combermere High School. He left for Trinidad in 1946, teaching school until 1950. He then emigrated to England where, for a short time, he worked in a factory. In 1951 he became a broadcaster for the BBC Colonial Service.

Fall 1998 Postcolonial Courses
ENG 789J: Postcolonialism at the End of the Century Fall 1998 Thurs 4-7 pm The time has come for a sober re-examination of what many have come to regard as a contentious but by now entrenched field in the academy: the enterprise of postcolonial studies. Having risen with speed in the last quarter of the century, postcolonialism might count as one of the metropolitan academy's millenial events. This course will undertake an assessment of the major theoretical formulations of postcolonial theory, a survey of its major literary texts, and evaluate predictions regarding its future trajectory. Texts: A selection of postcolonial fiction and theory by writers originating in Africa, Asia, and other postcolonies, including such figures as Frantz Fanon , Albert Memmi, Aime Cesaire, Chinweizu, Homi Bhabha, Edward Said Gayatri Chakravarty Spivak Salman Rushdie Paul Gilroy ... Rey Chow , Aijaz Ahmad, Ella Shohat, Arundhati Roy Jill Ker Conway Amitav Ghosh George Lamming
Particulars: Participation in on-line discussion; oral report; web project, and a final paper written with an eye toward publication and/or conference presentation. Papers written in this class should demonstrate an understanding of some of the major theoretical debates surrounding postcolonial literature/criticism and bring an interdisciplinary approach to the study of postcolonial texts.

Major Works
Natives of My Person In the Castle of My Skin (Ann Arbor Paperbacks Series)
George Lamming's "In the Castle of My Skin" skillfully depicts the Barbadian psyche. Set against the backdrop of the 1930s riots which helped to pave the way for Independence and the modern Barbados, through the eyes of a young boy, Lamming portrays the social, racial, political and urban struggles with which Barbados continues to grapple even with some thirty-three years of Political Independence from Britain. Required reading for all Caribbean people. The novel also offers non-Barbadians and non-Caribbean people insight into the modern social history of Barbados and the Caribbean The Emigrants (Ann Arbor Paperback) The Pleasures of Exile (Ann Arbor Paperbacks Series) Season of Adventure
Provides a powerful and insightful analysis on racism and colonization. Through his characters, Lamming paints a clear picture that allows us to see how racism not only affects its victims, but how it is also perpetuated by its victims. This book explains how and why "sellouts," "Uncle Toms" and "Tio Tacos" exist.

George Lamming's In the Castle of My Skin
By Paul Dorn
Originally written for Caribbean Literature, taught Spring 1995 at the San Francisco Art Institute by Alexandra Morrison
URL: Beyond the bloodshed and brutality of conquest, colonialism is experienced on a more intimate scale. The historic scars of imperial subjugation may be revealed in the difficult relationship between a poor, rural mother and her better educated son; the trauma a village feels at a violation of its customs by an outsider; the cruel way an occupying power punishes a talented native for pursuing cultural rewards it has stimulated a desire for. The colonial tradition has resulted in societies that continue to frustrate the full development of individual personality; divide communities according to complexion, class and belief; and limit possibilities for expression and achievement. This legacy of colonialism forms a common theme for many of the writers emerging from the Anglophone Caribbean. In attempting to relate this experience as felt by both communities and individuals, these writers have used a variety of narrative forms. Earl Lovelace's novel

Banyan Programme Catalogue Banyan Home Page Banyan Archive Summary This Month's Archive Extract Transcript of an interview with George Lamming LOCATION: East Coast, Barbados DATE: 1989 Well, after that, there is a number of journeys. I mean the first in fact, most critical one was the journey from Barbados to Trinidad. My particular relation to the Caribbean region was to a large extent formed and shaped in Trinidad through the Trinidad experience that got me to realise that there was a cultural area - a unit that was just not Barbados. It was the whole region and I think it had to do with the time I went to Trinidad. I'm arriving in Trinidad at the time when Williams is not yet in politics, but he is a very seminal influence in making Caribbean history a reality. We had grown up without that dimension and then not only as writer of something about Capitalism and Slavery, but actual articulator in person, bringing together of young people to look at documents. I always make the point that the first time I heard of the Cuban poet, Nicholas Guile and the French poet, Aime Cesaire, was through Williams who was telling me that if you are going to be a writer of and for the region, you've got to make this contact. This was before Williams came into politics. So that by the time I got to England, this seed was very firmly planted and then it blossomed there in a way because it was one of the ironies of history that here we were separated by imperialism - Jamaica from Barbados, Barbados from Trinidad and so on, but it was really at the metropole at London that we came together, so I first got to know Jamaica and Guyana and other territories at London and then that was really an extension of that learning to be a Caribbean person.

An Interview with George Lamming
Erika J. Waters
George Lamming is the pre-eminent novelist of the earlier generation of West Indian writers and his first novel, In the Castle of My Skin , is arguably the most widely read West Indian novel of all time. Rex Nettleford, Vice Chancellor of the University of the West Indies, has called Lamming "one of the Caribbean's finest intellectuals."
Born in Barbados in 1927, George Lamming attended Combermere High School, where the legendary editor of BIM , Frank Collymore, was his teacher. Collymore inspired his love of books (as Lamming details in the interview below). After he finished school, Lamming taught in Trinidad before moving to England in the 1950s. His early literary efforts were in poetry; however, it was his first novel, In the Castle of My Skin , which appeared in 1953 and catapulted its author to prominence. It won the Somerset Maugham Award for literature, and Richard Wright wrote the introduction to the American edition.
Castle was followed by several novels: The Emigrants Of Age and Innocence (1958), and

Behold the Child among his new-born blisses
A six years' Darling of a pigmy size!
See, where 'mid work of his own hand he lies,
Fretted by sallies of his mother's kisses,
With light upon him from his father's eyes! See, at his feet, some little plan or chart, Some fragment from his dream of human life, Shaped by himself with newly-learned art.' [1] As Ngugi put it in Decolonizing the Mind Children who encountered literature in colonial schools and universities were thus experiencing the world defined and reflected in the European experience of history. Their entire way of looking at the world, even the world of the immediate environment, was Euro-centric. Europe was the centre of Universe. The earth moved around the European intellectual scholarly axis. The images children encountered in literature were reinforced by their study of history and geography, and science and technology where Europe was, once again, the centre. This in turn fitted well with the cultural imperatives of British imperialism.

    A compelling and intricate novel of emigration and the effects of colonialism on a people. Richard Drayton and Andaiye, Editors Barbadian writer George Lamming's first novel, In the Castle of My Skin , was published in 1953.

Topics include Lamming's memoirs of the making of a writer, the National Dance Theatre of Jamaica, C. L. R. James, nationalism and nation, and Caribbean politics and culture.

    B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback George Lamming (b. 1927) Barbadian novelist, critic, and social commentator, whose IN THE CASTLE OF MY SKIN (1953) is one of the classics of West Indian literature. Like Kamau Brathwaite , Lamming has used the themes of exile and return in his search of the black West Indian identity. "The indigenous Carib and Arawak Indians, living by their own lights long before the European adventure, gradually disappear in a blind, wild forest of blood. That mischievous gift, the sugar cane, is introduced, and a fantastic human migration moves to the New World of the Caribbean; deported crooks and criminals, defeated soldiers and Royalist gentlemen fleeing from Europe, slaves from the West Coast of Africa, East Indians, Chinese, Corsicans, and Portuguese. The list is always incomplete, but they all move and meet on an unfamiliar soil, in an unpredictable and infinite range of custom and endeavour, people in the most haphazard combinations, surrounded by memories of splendour and misery, the sad and dying kingdom of Sugar, a future full of promises. And always the sea!" (from The Pleasures of Exile George Lamming was born in Carrington Village, Barbados, of mixed African and English parentage. His mother was unmarried, but after she married, Lamming grew up partly in his native village and in St David's Village, where his stepfather worked. Lamming attended Roebuck Boys' School and Combermere High School. Encouraged by his teacher, Frank Collymore, Lamming found the world of books and started to write. Before moving to England, he worked from 1946 to 1950 as a teacher at El Colegio de Venezuela, a boarding-school for boys in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

    Caribbean novelist George Lamming's classic novel of magic, politics, and cultural identity. First published in 1960, Season of Adventure details the story of Fola, a light-skinned middle-class girl who has been tipped out of her easy hammock of social privilege into the complex political and cultural world of her recently independent homeland, the Caribbean island of San Cristobal. After attending a ceremony of the souls to raise the dead, she is carried off by the unrelenting accompaniment of steel drums onto a mysterious journey in search of her past and of her identity. Gradually, she is caught in the crossfire of a struggle between people who have "pawned their future to possessions" and those "condemned by lack of learning to a deeper truth." The music of the drums sounds throughout the novel, "loud as gospel to a believer's ears," and at the end stands alone as witness to the tradition which is slowly being destroyed in the name of European values. Whether through literary production or public pronouncements, George Lamming has explored the phenomena of colonialism and imperialism and their impact on the psyche of Caribbean people. First published in 1960

    A Brief Biography of George Lamming
    David P. Lichtenstein '99 , Brown University, Contributing Editor, Caribbean Web
    Perhaps the most famous writer to emerge from the island of Barbados, the now grandfatherly George Lamming was born on June 8, 1927. Though he grew up on the island, like so many West Indian writers he eventually left, emigrating to England in 1950. There, after spending some time working in a factory and broadcasting for the BBC, Lamming became a leader in a Caribbean renaissance that took place in England, along with other exiles like V.S. Naipaul . Since then he has traveled much, returning often to the West Indies but also serving as a visiting professor at the Universities of Texas and Pennsylvania. Lamming's writing career has encompassed several genres, gaining acclaim not simply for fiction but also poetry and critical work. His fiction has taken up the familiar Caribbean search for identity, as Lamming (in such works as In the Castle of My Skin ) uses details from his own autobiography to get at the root of the West Indian soul. However, in these explorations of identity and the effects of history, Lamming comes not only to writing of the West Indian psyche, but of humans in general. Despite critics' accusations of using his novels as soapboxes from which he preaches his Marxist ideology, Lamming's efforts to tie together collective history through the shared humanity of his characters ensure that his novels remain skillfully crafted and multifaceted.
