About this title


Focusing on the African writer and the language of the former colonial power, The Francophone African Text: Translation and the Postcolonial Experience highlights the writer’s re-appropriation of the foreign language in the creative writing process. It calls attention to the African writer’s use of French, a process of creative translation in which the writer’s words form a hybrid code that compels the original French to refer to the indigenous African language for meaning. Examining a group of works under the theme of translation, this book reveals that a consideration of both ideological and linguistic elements enhances understanding of the subject from the broader perspective of postcolonial discourse.

From the Back Cover:

"This book is an important contribution to Francophone literary translation studies. Its approach to literary translation-not just in the conventional, linguistic sense, but more fundamentally as the expression, in the case of Francophone African writers, of what the author calls an ''alien' imagination in a European tongue'-is of significance, beyond its immediate literature of reference, for second-language literary studies." John Conteh-Morgan, Associate Professor of French and Editor of Research in African Literatures, The Ohio State University
