Thirteen Stories and Sixteen Poems
by Gyandeo Persad
These stories and poems examine the universal themes of love, death, family life, infidelity, the occult, nature, God, and religious prejudice. They are set to the background of the history of Trinidad and India and use the cultural experiences of the first generation of the Indentured laborers to highlight the challenges that may have caused that sector of the population to remain in "the castle of their own skin." The writings are so structured so as to provide the avid reader with exiting stories and poems; the secondary school students with the satisfaction of cannily imaginative stories and poems while simultaneously fulfilling the requirements of academia; the tertiary level students with a platform for thesis materials and for the philosopher; an invaluable insight into the nature of man's existence in this world.
