Ourika : an English translation by Claire de Durfort Duras( Book )

87 editions published between 1823 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A best-seller in the 1820s, Ourika captured the attention of Duras's peers, including Stendhal, and became the subject of four contemporary plays. The work represents a number of firsts: the first novel set in Europe to have a black heroine, the first French literary work narrated by a black female protagonist, and, as John Fowles points out in the foreword to his translation, "the first serious attempt by a white novelist to enter a black mind." An inspiration for Fowles's acclaimed novel The French Lieutenant's Woman, Ourika will astonish and haunt modern readers
Translating slavery : gender and race in French women's writing, 1783-1823 by Doris Y Kadish( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translating Slavery explores the complex interrelationships that exist between translation, gender, and race. By focusing on antislavery writing by French women during the revolutionary period, when a number of them spoke out against the oppression of slaves and women, this study examines a significant but often overlooked tradition in French literature and history. In addition to the marginalization that they typically undergo in literary and historical studies, translation, gender, and race all entail the same kind of mediating process. A close look at what happens when translators translate and when writers treat gender and race shows that literature is less an objective expression of universal values than an ideological expression of local values. This volume highlights key issues in the theory and practice of translation by providing both original works and their translations, as well as essays on the issues involved in translating gender and race. Since those issues include both the gender and the cultural background of translators, it is significant to note that the translations given here have been produced by women of French, American, and African American origins. Their efforts make accessible the work of three women writers who differ in historical context, social class, political views, and attitudes toward women's issues - Olympe de Gouges, Germaine de Stael, and Claire de Duras. This volume thereby maintains in some measure the tradition of women's resistance to the hegemonic cultural and social practices that have adversely affected women and persons of color. Translating Slavery will appeal to readers and students interested in women's studies, black studies, 18th- and 19th-century French literature and history, comparative literature, and translation
