Jamaica Kincaid's At the ground of the River... encouraged, lyrical brief stories
Reading Jamaica Kincaid is to plunge, lightly, into in a different way of seeing either the actual global and its elusive population. Her voice is, by means of turns, naively whimsical and biblical in its coverage, and it speaks of what's partly remembered in part divined. The stories usually trouble a youth within the Caribbean--family, manners, and landscape--as distilled and remodeled through Kincaid's detailed kind and vision.
Kincaid leads her readers to think about, as though for the 1st time, the robust ties among mom and baby; the wonder and destructiveness of nature; the gulf among the masculine and the female; the importance of generic things--a apartment, a cup, a pen. Transfiguring our human shape and our surroundings--shedding epidermis, darkening a day, portray an ideal place--these tales let us know whatever we did not understand, in a fashion we hadn't expected.
