As the slave revolt unfolds, the play's white hero, Leon, realizes the discrepancy between his liberal political and philosophical ideas and the reality of his family's economic interests.

The second volume of this revised and expanded edition of Translating Slavery Translating Slavery explores the complex interrelationships that exist between translation, gender, and race by focusing on antislavery writing by or about French women in the French revolutionary period. Now in two volumes, Translating Slavery closely examines what happens when translators translate literary works that address issues of gender and race. The volumes explore the theoretical, linguistic, and literary complexities involved when white writers, especially women, took up their pens to denounce the injustices to which blacks were subjected under slavery.Volume 1, Gender and Race in French Abolitionist Writing, 1780?1830, highlights key issues in the theory and practice of translation by providing essays on the factors involved in translating gender and race, as well as works in translation.Volume 2, Ourika and Its Progeny, contains the original translation of Claire de Duras?s Ourika as well as a series of original critical essays by twenty-first-century scholars. First published anonymously in 1823, Ourika signifies an important shift from nineteenth-century notions of race, nationality, and kinship toward the identity politics of today. Editors Kadish and Massardier-Kenney and their contributors review the impact of the novel and abolitionist narrative, poetry, and theater in the context of translation studies.This revised and expanded edition of Translating Slavery will appeal to scholars and students interested in race and gender studies, French literature and history, comparative literature, and translation studies

Sarah : an English translation by Marceline Desbordes-Valmore ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A dugout canoe comes ashore on the island of Saint-Barthelemy in the Antilles; in it are a black man, Arsene, and a sleeping white child, Sarah. Seeking refuge, they are taken in by a good man, but the overseer of his plantation threatens both Arshne and Sarah with the loss of their freedom." "Deborah Jenson and Doris Kadish introduce Sarah, an 1821 novella by Desbordes-Valmore, explaining its autobiographical background, political context (the revolt of blacks against Napoleon's soldiers), and literary genre (sentimentalism). The novella was a precursor to anticolonial and antislavery texts by Claire de Duras, Victor Hugo, George Sand, and Alphonse de Lamartine." "Marceline Desbordes-Valmore (1786-1859), born in an artisan's family, was poor much of her life. Her arrival with her mother in the French Caribbean coincided with the outbreak of rebellion among the black population. After her mother's death, Desbordes-Valmore returned to Europe, where she worked as an actress and eventually made her name as a Romantic poet."--Jacket

Translating slavery gender and race in French women's writing, 1783-1823 ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 78 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

Présentés dans ce volume, ils incluent La Famille noire (1825) et trois nouvelles tirées de Cornélies, nouvelle grecques, suivie de de six nouvelles (1826) : Blanche et Noir, Noire et Blanc et Le Négrier. Pour franchir le mur de l'indifférence qui se dresse devant le public français des années 1820, Sophie Doin à recours à la littérature et met ainsi son art au service d'une cause sociale qui dénonce le trafic négrier. Une sensibilisation au problème de l'asservissement des Noirs
