Product Description

Emerging Perspectives on Maryse Condé: A Writer of Her Own brings together for the first time a collection of essays in English about the novels of this contemporary Caribbean literary and cultural figure. The editors’ critical introduction situates Condé’s work within larger political and theoretical discussions about writing by women, writing from the African diaspora, and global literature. Using examples from Condé’s novels from Hérémakhonon to Histoire de la femme cannibale, the fourteen essays are grouped thematically; topics range from translation (in terms of language, culture, and ideology) to the Black diaspora subject’s search for origins and identity (especially as it is complicated by gender), and a number of the interpretations highlight the work’s challenge to thinking about history and memory in the Caribbean and in the Black diaspora. The volume includes a bibliography of Condé’s works and of criticism on her writing that complements the “selective bibliography” found in Françoise Pfaff’s Entretiens avec Maryse Condé and updated in the English version, Conversations with Maryse Condé.

Contributors to the volume include Richard Philcox, Pascale De Souza, Kathleen Gyssels, Jennifer R. Thomas, Serigne Ndiaye, Jennifer Sparrow, Gloria Nne Onyeoziri, Johanna X. K. Garvey, Laurence M. Porter, Dawn Fulton, Christiane Makward (with Anne Oszwald), Katherine Elkins, Maria Christina Fumagalli, and Carine Mardorossian.
