Haiti and the United States : national stereotypes and the literary imagination by J. Michael Dash( Book )

19 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Highly stimulating history of Haitian and US perceptions of each other as seen in each country's literature from 1850s-1990s. Dash sets these texts in political context and repeatedly demonstrates the narrow line between 'imaginative' and 'objective' descriptions of Haiti by US writers. This critical perspective, combined with the author's knowledge of 20th-century Haitian literature, makes this study a particularly valuable one"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

In this first full-length study of Glissant's creative and theoretical work J. Michael Dash examines his poems, novels, plays and essays in the context of modern French literary movements and the post-negritude Caribbean situation, providing both a useful introduction to, and a challenging assessment of, Glissant's work to date. Dash shows how Glissant has focused in an unprecedented way on the Caribbean in terms of the diverse and hybrid culture that has been created in the region, and how his ideas on a cross-cultural poetics are the shaping force in the francophone Caribbean 'Creolite' movement

Reading the French Caribbean through Edouard Glissant by Elizabeth Bowles Duchanaud( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through the theoretical tenets of Edouard Glissant, one of the most prominent thinkers and writers of the French Caribbean today, contemporary francophone criticism within a postcolonial framework can be developed. Glissant offers insight into the theoretical threads of the francophone postcolonial, and in turn proposes fresh new ways to read its literature. Through a specifically French Caribbean corpus of novels, I study the alternative approaches to reading that Glissant promises through theories of home, langage, opacity, and madness. To the concept of migration that lies at the heart of Maryse Conde's La Migration des coeurs, a rewriting of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, the application of Glissantian theories of Relation and Tout-monde offer a comparative edge by which to read spaces, as well as key concepts of francophone postcolonial thinking. Patrick Chamoiseau's development of language through the djobeur and the Creole town in Chronique des sept miseres becomes the platform upon which Glissant's innovative theories of "langue" and "langage," of dominant and minority languages, come to life. It is through Glissant's concept of detour that the narrator of Andre and Simone Schwarz-Bart's Un Plat de porc aux bananes vertes molds her voice and her past despite darkness, solitude, and forgetting. Finally, Glissant's figure of the "deparleur," or Caribbean mad poet, argues for alternative approaches to revolution and collective voice, in turn shedding new light on the motifs of madness and resistance that underlie the whole of Marie Chauvet's trilogy Amour, colere, et folie. Finally, through Glissant, I hope not only to redress postcolonialism's traditional anglophone bias, and decolonize the term francophone, but to suggest reading literature as an always relational, multicultural, comparative endeavor
