Download MP3

Maryse Condé reads from her novel Windward Heights, a reimagining of Wuthering Heights. She talks about the complex motivations and the process of drawing out latent trends involved in rewriting Bronte's novel, translated by Richard Philcox. Antonio Benitez-Rojo reads his short story Marina 36 and discusses the nature of exile, Cuban writing. They answer questions on literary education, the plurality of voices and languages present in Caribbean literature and the specific issues that arise from translation.
