This book is the first major study of French Caribbean literature in light of postcoloniality. Through readings of Aimé Césaire, Edouard Glissant, Maryse Condé, Baudelaire, Freud, and others, Jeannie Suk illuminates how debates about négritude, antillanité, and creolité contribute to paradoxes at the heart of postcolonial modes.

Postcolonial Paradoxes should be welcomed as an important contemporary assessment of key figures within Antillean writing. * Moving Worlds: A Journal of Transcultural Writings * This book is an important addition to the growing field of Caribbean studies, and underlines the truth that much of the most impressive work in this domain is being done in English. * Modern Language Review * ... offers an important and original contribution to the study of French Antillean literature ... Thoroughly researched, clearly written, and compellingly argued, it places this literature within the context of deconstructive, poststructuralist thought with ease and sophistication, while offering substantive close-readings of canonical texts that markedly extend our awareness of the subtle workings of these materials. * Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa and the Middle East * ... engages adroitly with the relations between theory, fiction and politics, showing how they have taken quite a distinctive shape in Caribbean culture. * Journal of Romance Studies *
