Abstract

Sorcery is a subject that always creates heated debate in our  contemporary society. That’s why we aim to examine sorcery within the specific context of Caribbean writer’s literary creations. Therefore, this study looks at witch crafting as one of the major themes that continue to occupy a major place in the Antillean literary discourse. It seems to us that irrespective of the presence of this theme, very rare are literary critics especially from Nigeria that is based on sorcery. That forms our reason of venturing
into these literary works to unveil and show how witch crafting is represented. What are the reasons behind this? The overall  assessment is it negative or positive? What is the way forward? These are basic questions that this study tries to resolve under social critic approach.


Key Words: Rethink, witch crafting, Antillean, social critic
