De brug van Paramaribo naar Willemstad

Nederland – Caribisch en Caribisch – Nederlandse literatuur 1945-2005

De brug van Paramaribo naar Willemstad gaat over Nederlandstalige literatuur in het Caribisch gebied tussen 1945 en 2005. Het boek bestaat uit twee delen. Het eerste deel beschrijft de Nederlands – Caribische literatuur. Het tweede deel schetst de Caribisch – Nederlandse literatuur.

Dit onderscheid: Caribisch – Nederlands en Nederlands – Caribisch, valt samen met wat wel eens de koloniale en post – koloniale literatuur genoemd wordt. Het eerste werd geschreven vanuit de Westerse visie, het tweede ‘schreef terug’ en stelde aldus het Westerse beeld bij, of corrigeerde het. Ook de vertrekpunten van deze twee literaturen staan diametraal tegenover elkaar. De eerste schreef immers in de eigen taal over een vreemd cultuur, de tweede in een tweede of zelfs derde taal over de eigen cultuur.

Beide delen bevatten achtergrond informatie over de ontwikkelingen van deze literaturen vanaf 1945 tot 2005. De eerste is chronologisch gerangschikt volgens jaartal. De tweede is thematisch geordend volgens een elftal onderwerpen.

Het is voor het eerst dat de literatuur van Suriname, de Nederlandse Antilliaanse eilanden en Aruba op een dergelijk uitgebreide wijze onder een noemer gebracht word. Deze inleiding op de Nederlands – Caribische en de Caribisch – Nederlandse literatuur is te gebruiken als achtergrondinformatie bij enkele bestaande grote bloemlezingen van deze literatuur. Omgekeerd vormen deze bloemlezingen illustratiemateriaal voor deze inleiding.

Het boek werd eerder als cd-rom verspreid onder literatuurdocenten op de Nederlandse Antillen en Aruba bij de methode Kadans, Literatuurgeschiedenis. Deze publicatie is een gezamenlijke uitgave van het taalinstituut, Fundashon pa Planifikashon di Idioma en de Algemene Faculteit van de Universiteit van de Nederlandse Antillen.

Wim Rutgers is hoogleraar literatuurwetenschap aan de Universiteit van de Nederlandse Antillen op Curaçao met bijzondere aandacht voor de Caribische literatuur. Hij deed onderzoek en doceerde ook in Nederland, Suriname en Aruba. Hij publiceerde onder andere literatuurgeschiedenissen en bloemlezingen van de meertalige Caribische literatuur.
