In The Jumbie Bird (1961) by Ismith Khan, the theme of generations is characterized by a general striving ahead and engagement with multiracial, multiethnic Trinidad. Khan's second novel, The Obeah Man (1964), reflects the author's wide-ranging engagement with national consciousness. Like Selvon, Khan embraces all aspects of Trinidad's culture as facets of his creative vision. The novels of Trinidad's Michael Anthony and Earl Lovelace have a different relationship to Trinidad as native space.
