The St. James of the Naipauls and Capildeos

Tuesday, 25th October 2016 at 6pm - 8pm

Location: City Hall, Knox Street, Port-of-Spain

This event is in the past.

Seepersad Naipaul was married to Droapatie Capildeo in Chaguanas in 1929.  Local knowledge and scholarship have established the connections of the Naipauls and Capildeos with Chaguanas, and has marked  their socially and culturally important shift to the city world of Port of Spain (in particular Woodbrook – whose Lewis Street supplied the ground plan and people of V.S. Naipaul’s Miguel Street) . 

But the mutually enriching  relationship between them and St James has not been sufficiently examined. Robert Clarke’s presentation “The St James of the Naipauls and Capildeos “ is the first of a series of Friends of Mr Biswas lectures in which the ground is measured not only for a better understanding of  the Naipauls and Capildeos  (“Shiva is a St James writer” ; “The Naipaul House is a St James heritage building”);  but also  for an exploration of the rich cultural heritage of St  James. The patronage of the Port of Spain Corporation is public recognition of this important project.
