Really interesting article by author Caryl Phillip on society and identity: “I was still engaged in a struggle to recognise and protect my own identity, in all its intricacy, for I knew that I had to view it as unique, complicated, open to inspection and re-examination, and binding me not just to a particular tribe, clan, or race, but to the human race. I always understood that recognising this would be a prerequisite of writing well, for the more vigorously one resists a narrow view of self, the more one sees.”
