In this whole passage some of the writers are being criticized on their books and novels on their feminist and eco-feminist approach while writing their books and the books are on the topic of women rights and the problems manifested in race, class and gender relations.

            Early in his career, Braithwaite was repeatedly compared with another famous Caribbean poet, Derek Walcott. Patrica Ismond concludes that Walcott is the better craftsman, a type of “poet’s poet,” but she praised Braithwaite for taking on the role of representative figure for the people of the West Indies, and for representing “their collective destiny.” Indeed, most criticism of Braithwaite focuses on themes such as the continuities between Africa and the Caribbean or Braithwaite’s cyclical theory of history and culture. Many critics do close readings of Braithwaite’s poems to unearth the shards of African culture Braithwaite includes in his works. Simon Gikandi and others conclude that “oral languages take revenge against institutionalized poetic forms,” and Norman Weinstein traces the influence of jazz in Braithwaite’s work. Nana Wilson-Tagoe describes Braithwaite’s poetry as a “mode of apprehension, in which the writer seeks community and image through a drama of consciousness.” The vast majority of Braithwaite’s critics celebrate his poetry for its rhythms and evocations of the African past in the Caribbean present.

            Uchenna Pamela Vassar’s paper “The double bind: Women and the environment in Manuel Zapata Olivia’s Chambacu black slum and A saint is born in Chima  describes the eco critical and eco-feminist approaches she sees as necessary for understanding the afro Columbian novelist’s historical setting. Vasser argues that while Olivia’s novels powerfully depict the oppression of blacks and indigenous peoples and the effects of the nationalist ideology of Africanidad in rehabilitating their cultural identity. He finally cannot imagine women outside their traditional roles in a patriarchal system. Women in the novels remain trapped in the familiar “double bind”.

This whole thesis and the passage is giving a sight of women value in the Africa and the Caribbean writers having feminist approach are being praised and others are being criticized because of their work and thoughts. Now my interest is in the favor of those women who are being abused and are in bad conditions regarding their race, gender relations and class.
