Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read a very sour interview in a Trinidad newspaper by someone who was disappointed that the book was not festive enough. If you are expecting a book that conveys the hedonistic atmosphere of the carnival, this is not the book for you. The photos, while good, are in black and white and illustrate the points made in the text. The prose can be dry in some of the chapters, though Peter Minshall's interview does illustrate the excitement felt by the participants who invest an entire year planning this one event.
If you want a detailed examination of Trinidadian Carnival, and its influence on West Indian based carnivals in Notting Hill and elsewhere, this is an excellent book. A number of authors have been included so that interpretations can be compared rather than taken verbatim. Once again, Minshall's chapter is particularly important as he is one of the major influences on modern walking costume design. Unfortunately the illustrations in his chapter do not show this as effectively as one might want, but that is a small criticism of an otherwise excellent research book.
