By Paul Buhle.
We learn only now that novelist Wilson Harris (1921-2018) passed,
several weeks ago, in Chelmsford, England. With him passes, very nearly,
generations of highly political, English-language Caribbean
literature. George Lamming, of Barbados, remains frail but has spent a
life on the Left; V.S. Naipaul, raised in Trinidad, is active and as
always, on the Right. Wilson Harris was outside the usual political
spectrum, but definitely on the side of liberation, that is liberation
of the ecosphere, of the earth’s inhabitants at large, and of all the
cultures now endangered with extermination.
