Monsters, tricksters, and sacred cows : animal tales and American identities( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1992 Quincentennial of the encounter between the New World and the Old resulted in a veritable culture war - an extreme polarization of hardened ideological positions on different ideas of America. Monsters, Tricksters, and Sacred Cows brings a fresh perspective to the confusing question of American identity. It clears the minefields laid by the generals commanding the opposing camps, while demonstrating that both sides have been primarily interested in protecting and defending an idea of "Americanness" that cannot resist scrutiny. Some of the leading international scholars in anthropology, comparative literature, and history of the Americas show convincingly in this book that contacts between and among peoples and ethnic groups have, since early colonial times, produced new - and typically American - cultural forms throughout the hemisphere. Monsters, Tricksters, and Sacred Cows will appeal to the general reader and will attract a wide readership in folklore and cultural anthropology as well as in Caribbean and Latin American studies, comparative literature, and history
A history of literature in the Caribbean by A. James Arnold( Book )

57 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cross-Cultural Studies is the culminating effort of a distinguished team of international scholars who have worked since the mid-1980s to create the most complete analysis of Caribbean literature ever undertaken. Conceived as a major contribution to postcolonial studies, cultural studies, cultural anthropology, and regional studies of the Caribbean and the Americas, Cross-Cultural Studies illuminates the interrelations between and among Europe, the Caribbean islands, Africa, and the American continents from the late fifteenth century to the present. Scholars from five continents bring to bear

Solar throat slashed : the unexpurgated 1948 edition by Aimé Césaire( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soleil cou coupé (Solar Throat Slashed) is Aimé Césaire's most explosive collection of poetry. Animistically dense, charged with eroticism and blasphemy, and imbued with an African and Vodun spirituality, this book takes the French surrealist adventure to new heights and depths. A Césaire poem is an intersection at which metaphoric traceries create historically aware nexuses of thought and experience, jagged solidarity, apocalyptic surgery, and solar dynamite. The original 1948 French edition of Soleil cou coupé has a dense magico-religious frame of reference. In the late 1950s, Césaire was increasingly politically focused and seeking a wider audience, when he, in effect, gelded the 1948 text--eliminating 31 of the 72 poems, and editing another 29. Until now, only the revised 1961 edition, called Cadastre, has been translated. The revised text lacks the radical originality of Soleil cou coupé. This Wesleyan edition presents all the original poems en face with the new English translations.--From publisher description
Genèse et critique d'un autobiographie: Les mots de Jean-Paul Sartre by A. James Arnold( Book )

The original 1939 notebook of A return to the native land : bilingual edition by Aimé Césaire( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aimé Césaire's masterpiece, Notebook of a Return to the Native Land, is a work of immense cultural significance and beauty. This long poem was the beginning of Césaire's quest for négritude, and it became an anthem of blacks around the world. Commentary on Césaire's work has often focused on its Cold War and inticolonialist rhetoric - material that Césaire only added in 1956. The original 1939 version of the poem, here in French and in its first English translation, reveals a work that is both spiritual and cultural in structure, tone, and thrust. This Wesleyan edition includes the original illustrations by Wilfredo Lam, and an introduction, notes, and chronology by A. James Arnold. --from inside jacket
