About this title

Synopsis:

The African and Caribbean Historical Novel in French: A Quest for Identity examines the historical novel that has emerged in Francophone Africa and the Caribbean since the late 1930s and includes such writers as Edouard Glissant of Martinique and Paul Hazoumé of Benin. This study underscores the ideological differences that distinguish the African and Caribbean historical novel from the classical nineteenth-century European historical novel. Through a post-colonial reading, the author examines the influence of Negritude on these writers and calls for an Afrocentric approach.

From the Publisher:

This study examines the historical novel that has emerged in Francophone Africa and the Caribbean since the late 1930s and includes such writers as Edouard Glissant of Martinique and Paul Hazoumé of Benin. It underscores the ideological differences that distinguish the African and Caribbean historical novel from the classical nineteenth-century European historical novel. Through a post-colonial reading, the author examines the influence of Negritude on these writers and calls for an Afrocentric approach.

The African and Caribbean Historical Novel in French: A Quest for Identity is an ambitious and stimulating work of literary criticism. It courageously addresses the complex issue of the historical novel and, remarkably, deals not only with contemporary Francophone novelists but also with some of the pioneers in Africa and the Caribbean. It provides a close reading of six colonial and post-colonial novels, from the 1930s to the present. Kandioura Dramé, University of Virginia
