A season in the Congo : a play by Aimé Césaire( Book )

This play by renowned poet and political activist Aime Cšaire recounts the tragic death of Patrice Lumumba, the first prime minister of the Congo Republic and an African nationalist hero. A Season in the Congo follows Lumumba's efforts to free the Congolese from Belgian rule and the political struggles that led to his assassination in 1961. Cšaire powerfully depicts Lumumba as a sympathetic, Christ-like figure whose conscious martyrdom reflects his self-sacrificing humanity and commitment to pan-Africanism

La tragédie du roi Christophe; théâtre by Aimé Césaire( Book )

59 editions published between 1963 and 2009 in French and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La tragédie du roi Christophe est une œuvre barbare (au sens noble du terme) lyrique et nécessaire. Affirmant que la politique est la force moderne du destin et l'histoire la politique vécue, Aimé Césaire donne à voir l'invention du futur, d'un futur enraciné. L'aventure haïtienne de Christophe ebvoque le destin collectif du peuple africain d'aujourd'hui. A la phase de la révolte aiguë a succédé celle de la re-connaissance, de la constitution d'un patrimoine authentique et librement assumé. -- Back cover

Le recueil Ferrements a été écrit en 1960, tandis que les autres écrits poétiques, datant de 1994, sont parus dans des revues. Il manifeste la cohérence du parcours créateur d'écriture qu'aucune démission, ni aucune vicissitude n'ont jamais fait dévier.--[MEMENTO]

Solar throat slashed : the unexpurgated 1948 edition by Aimé Césaire( Book )

13 editions published between 1948 and 2011 in French and English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soleil cou coupé (Solar Throat Slashed) is Aimé Césaire's most explosive collection of poetry. Animistically dense, charged with eroticism and blasphemy, and imbued with an African and Vodun spirituality, this book takes the French surrealist adventure to new heights and depths. A Césaire poem is an intersection at which metaphoric traceries create historically aware nexuses of thought and experience, jagged solidarity, apocalyptic surgery, and solar dynamite. The original 1948 French edition of Soleil cou coupé has a dense magico-religious frame of reference. In the late 1950s, Césaire was increasingly politically focused and seeking a wider audience, when he, in effect, gelded the 1948 text--eliminating 31 of the 72 poems, and editing another 29. Until now, only the revised 1961 edition, called Cadastre, has been translated. The revised text lacks the radical originality of Soleil cou coupé. This Wesleyan edition presents all the original poems en face with the new English translations.--From publisher description

La poésie by Aimé Césaire( Book )

25 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La disparition dʹAimé Césaire, il y a un an, donna lieu à un surprenant concert de louanges médiatiques. Les obsèques nationales qui lui furent rendues, lʹempressement aussi unanime que tardif de la classe politique française, où perçait lʹaveu dʹune certaine mauvaise conscience, tout ceci ne doit pas faire oublier quʹAimé Césaire fut longtemps tenu à la marge. Homme de colère plutôt que de compromis, il est avant tout lʹauteur dʹune œuvre poétique enfiévrée, enchantée, dont les premiers mots résonnent encore avec une violence nue: "Au bout du petit matin ... / Va-tʹen, lui disais-je, gueule de flic, gueule de vache, va-tʹen je déteste les larbins de lʹordre et les hannetons de lʹespérance." (Cahier dʹun retour au pays natal). Sous le titre général La Poésie, cette œuvre fut rassemblée au Seuil pour la première fois en 1994, puis reéditée en 2006. Elle est à nouveau remise en vente. -- Description from http://livre.fnac.com (Oct. 19, 2011)
Africa to America to Paris the migration of black writers( Visual )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces the path of African-American literature from the shores of the U.S. to the Left Bank of Paris at the end of World War II through the late 1960s. The program provides context by first exploring the New Orleans salon poetry of Desdunes and then discussing the historic suppression of black activists in the U.S. after the Harlem Renaissance.

Includes remembrances of fellow artists and readings from their diaries and works
The original 1939 notebook of A return to the native land : bilingual edition by Aimé Césaire( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aimé Césaire's masterpiece, Notebook of a Return to the Native Land, is a work of immense cultural significance and beauty. This long poem was the beginning of Césaire's quest for négritude, and it became an anthem of blacks around the world. Commentary on Césaire's work has often focused on its Cold War and inticolonialist rhetoric - material that Césaire only added in 1956. The original 1939 version of the poem, here in French and in its first English translation, reveals a work that is both spiritual and cultural in structure, tone, and thrust. This Wesleyan edition includes the original illustrations by Wilfredo Lam, and an introduction, notes, and chronology by A. James Arnold. --from inside jacket
