This paper uses a critical approach informed by postcolonial studies of the Caribbean to identify and examine three different types of migrations depicted in “En-cancaranublado,” a short story by the Puerto Rican author Ana Lydia Vega tracing the fates of three balseros. It also considers how the concept of “the other,” a legacy of the racial discourse of colonialism, is manifested in the story. Finally, it reflects on the vari-ous frontiers implicit in the story, including the transitory space of the Caribbean, a bor-derland where the divergent interests of the three balseros intersect and compete.
