Product Description

“In his inimitable, insightful and incisive style, Femi Ojo-Ade has produced an in-depth, challenging, critical reading of Aimé Césaire’s theatre that promises to be an indispensable companion to the study of African and Caribbean drama.”
—Victor Aire
Professor of French & Francophone Studies, University of Jos, Nigeria

“In this original and insightful book, Femi Ojo-Ade offers a new perspective on the historical importance of Aimé Césaire by redefining the fundamental relevance of his African theater in both colonial and postcolonial contexts. A masterpiece that will make worthwhile reading for students and scholars who are engaged in the field of Francophone African and Caribbean studies.”
—Kanaté Dahouda,
Associate Professor & Head, French and Francophone Studies Department, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Geneva, New York

“Including all of Aimé Césaire's dramatic corpus for the first time in English, Ojo-Ade's analysis provides a much needed look into the complex relationship between Césaire's theatre and Africa. This detailed examination, as well as Ojo-Ade's interview with Césaire, offers important insights into the man and his work. An important contribution to Césaire studies and an invaluable addition to the literature on both Africa and the African Diaspora.”
—Eloise A. Brière
Assistant Professor of French and Francophone Studies, The University at Albany/SUNY
