Abstract:

"Taking an innovative approach, Jane Winston transforms our understanding of Marguerite Duras and a crucial swath of twentieth-century French literary and cultural history by examining each through the lens of the other. This is the first book to read Duras in relation to colonial education, colonial propaganda, the postwar radicalization of left-wing intellectuals in France, and the work of artists of the African American and Francophone Vietnamese diasporas. Postcolonial Duras is required reading for scholars of Duras, literary and cultural studies, diaspora studies, African American and Asian studies, postcolonial and transnational studies, feminist theory, and gender studies."--BOOK JACKET.
