Resumen: It should have come as no surprise that there's a very strong narrative voice in literature today thet pays tribute to Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women. And like Louisa May Alcott, Jamaica Kincaid is a true daughter of Charlotte Brontë. This paper looks at the ways in which Alcott's text provides the backgroound against which Kincaid, in the novel Lucy, tests the cultural authority of the United States in terms of gender - the issues being the domestication of the 'savage' girl child and the primary role the mother plays in her life. But does this mean that Jamaica Kincaid has forfeited her identity as part of the Caribbean literary tradition?
