Sylvia Wynter's 1962 novel, The Hills of Hebron, is both a narrative of the nation and critique of the extant vision of the nation. Writing her novel from the perspective of a theorist, Wynter introduces insights and concepts that she has since developed in her extensive body of theoretical essays. This article looks particularly at the strategies she uses to incorporate gender issues into her novel.
