Jean Constantine D'Costa, storywriter, critic and teacher was born in January 1937 in Jamaica. She attended St. Hilda's and St. Hugh's High Schools and later studied at the University of West Indies. Later, she would pursue further studies at Oxford and Indiana Universities of West Indies and Hamilton College in the USA. As Professor of English at Hamilton College 1980-1989, she taught English 200, Creative Writing, The Tortured Sensibility, Old English, History of the English Language and Major Caribbean Writers.
D'Costa is also a well-established writer of children's books. Sprat Morrison, her first novel, captures the Jamaican atmosphere and speech rhythms with great precision and insight. Sprat Morrison has found a special place in Jamaican schools' curriculum and is used as prescribed text in literature in many high schools. Her work in linguistics, especially on Jamaican Creole, is also well known. Language in Exile, a work she co-authored with Barbara Lalla, tries to recapture the Creole speech of early Jamaican society by analyzing rare, 18th and 19th century documents in their sociohistorical context.
D'Costa has also copy-edited a number of books for the University Press of the University of the West Indies, as well as a historical novel of film maker Perry Henzell's, The Harder They Come which was written by Michael Thelwell. For many years she continued to write fiction and poetry for adults, adolescents and children.
Jean D'Costa is now retired and lives in Weston, Florida.

Breaking away from traditional categories, Rachel G. Fuchs and Victoria E. Thompson provide a sense of the variety and complexity of women's lives across national and regional boundaries, juxtaposing the experiences of women with the perceptions of their lives. Three themes unite this study:
- the tension between tradition and modernity
- the changing relationship between the community and individual
- the shifting boundaries between public and private
Dealing with individual women's lives within a large social and cultural context, Fuchs and Thompson demonstrate how strong and courageous women refused to live within the prescribed domestic roles - and how many became the modern women of the twentieth century.
VICTORIA E. THOMPSON is Associate Professor of History at Arizona State University.
