Book Description: Theatre Communications Group Inc.,U.S., United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 124 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Cesaire s Tempest, in translation by Richard Miller, is a sprightly and song-filled enchantment. The luminous intelligence of Mr. Cesaire s meditation on the absurdities of colonialism shines through the antics of the bewildered characters. - New York Times Cesaire s rich and insightful adaptation of The Tempest draws on contemporary Caribbean society, the African-American experience and African mythology to raise questions about colonialism, racism and their lasting effects. The weapon of poetry may be Cesaire s greatest gift to a modern world still searching for freedom. As one of the last truly great universalists of the twentieth century, he has had a hand in shaping or critiquing many of the major ideologies and movements of the modern world. In his own words: Poetic knowledge is born in the great silence of scientific knowledge - from the Introduction AIME CESAIRE was a world-renowned poet, essayist and dramatist, whose best known works include Notebook of a Return to My Native Land, The Tragedy of King Christophe and A Season in the Congo. He was the founding editor of Tropiques, which was instrumental in establishing the use of surrealism as a political weapon. He co-formulated the concept of negritude, which urges black Africans to reject assimilation and cultivate consciousness of their racial qualities and heritage. Cesaire held a number of government positions in his native Martinique, including that of mayor of Fort-de-France. Cesaire died in 2008. RICHARD MILLER has translated many books, both nonfiction and fiction, including works by Roland Barthes, Brassa? and Albert Camus, as well as poetry, many articles and a number of plays. Among his more recent translations are Scent by Annick Le Guerer and Beethoven s Ninth by Esteban Buch, which was published in 2002. He lives in Paris. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781559362108
