Between totem and taboo : black man, white woman in francographic literature by Roger Little( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and French and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book picks its way through a minefield of prejudice, myth and stereotypes. Many of its key terms require qualifying quotation marks: 'black', 'white', 'race', 'mixed marriages' and so forth. Through a Francographic corpus - that is, one of writing in French, primarily in this case from France and its former colonies in Africa and the West Indies - covering the last two and a half centuries since the first French novel with a black hero, it explores the representation of intimate relationships between 'black' men and 'white' women against the largely unshifting but shifty European agenda which determined - and still largely determines - concepts of 'racial' superiority and inferiority." "Presented as a text-based chronological exploration of the relationship, it reveals how racism distorted such relations for a quarter of a millenium. It will fascinate anyone seriously interested in Black studies, Women's studies and Postcolonial studies, as well as in French literary and cultural studies; they will find in it not only many unknown or unconsidered texts but a new angle of approach to their research."--Jacket

Ourika : an English translation by Claire de Durfort Duras( Book )

20 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a True Story, Ourika relates the experiences of a Senegalese girl who is rescued from slavery and raised by an aristocratic French family during the French Revolution. Brought up in a household of learning and privilege, she is unaware of her difference until she overhears a conversation that makes her suddenly conscious of her race - and of the prejudice it arouses. From this point on, Ourika lives her life not as a French woman but as a black woman "cut off from the entire human race." As the Reign of Terror threatens her and her adoptive family, Ourika struggles with her unusual position as an educated African woman in eighteenth-century Europe

William Faulkner : a life through novels by André Bleikasten( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writing to American poet Malcolm Cowley in 1949, William Faulkner expressed his wish to be known only through his books. He would go on to win the Nobel Prize for literature several months later, and when he died famous in 1962, his biographers immediately began to unveil and dissect the unhappy life of "the little man from Mississippi." Despite the many works published about Faulkner, his life and career, it still remains a mystery how a poet of minor symbolist poems rooted in the history of the Deep South became one of the greatest novelists of the twentieth century. Here, renowned critic Andre Bleikasten revisits Faulkner's biography through the author's literary imagination. Weaving together correspondence and archival research with the graceful literary analysis for which he is known, Bleikasten presents a multi-strand account of Faulkner's life in writing. By carefully keeping both the biographical and imaginative lives in hand, Bleikasten teases out threads that carry the reader through the major events in Faulkner's life, emphasizing those circumstances that mattered most to his writing: the weight of his multi-generational family history in the South; the formation of his oppositional temperament provoked by a resistance to Southern bourgeois propriety; his creative and sexual restlessness and uncertainty; his lifelong struggle with finances and alcohol; his paradoxical escape to the bondages of Hollywood; and his final bent toward self-destruction. This is the story of the man who wrote timeless works and lived in and through his novels
