520 a$aThe Middle Passage describes V.S. Naipaul´s journey to Trinidad, British Guiana, Surinam, Martinique, and Jamaica. As the travelogue unfolds, Naipaul explains why he had to escape from the Caribbean to England by depicting a nightmare image of West Indian society. As he quotes in the epigraph the words of James Anthony Froude, the Caribbean society is inadequate and lacks viability: There are no people here [...] with a character or purpose of their own (Naipaul xi). Futhermore, the Caribbean is a derelict land, since [h]istory is built around achievement and creation; and nothing was created in the West Indies (20). As such, Naipaul´s record of his travel experience and obeservations of the Caribbean serve to project his one-sided knowledge of West Indian society.
