Abstract

Abstract:

Sam Selvon's The Lonely Londoners has drawn much critical attention for its language, its mix of Standard English and dialect. It has also drawn some criticism for its representation of sexuality. This essay draws attention to the text's particular strategy for the emergence and clarification of meanings on both linguistic and libidinal registers.
