Ourika by Claire de Durfort Duras( Book )

29 editions published between 1823 and 2015 in French and English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ourika is the story of an African girl growing up in France: based on a true story, it was a runaway bestseller following its first publication in Paris in 1823. It is now seen as a novel of exceptional psychological penetration and intercultural interest, anticipating Fanon in several ways. Race, class and the role of women in society are key issues it raises. Ourika is acknowledged by John Fowles to have inspired his novel The French Lieutenant's Woman. This is a corrected and updated reprint of the 1998 second edition of this text, first published by University of Exeter Press in 1993 in th

"Ourika, una niña senegalesa condenada a la esclavitud y la barberie, es salvada por un piadoso aristócrata que la traslada a Francia donde recibe una refinada educación al cuidado de Madame de B. La conciencia de su color de piel supone un conflicto insalvable para la mentalidad y los modales propios de una sociedad que jamás le perdonará semejante pecado original. Ourika queda así atrapada entre un mundo que la rechaza y otro al que ya nunca podrá regresar. El trasfondo histórico de su tragedia se desarrolla en los convulsos años previos a la Revolución Francesa que, pese a sus promesas de libertad, igualdad y fraternidad, no consigue de facto abolir los prejuicios y diferencias que condenan a Ourika a un exilio emocional involuntario"--Back cover flap
Translating slavery : gender and race in French women's writing, 1783-1823 by Doris Y Kadish( )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translating Slavery explores the complex interrelationships that exist between translation, gender, and race. By focusing on antislavery writing by French women during the revolutionary period, when a number of them spoke out against the oppression of slaves and women, this study examines a significant but often overlooked tradition in French literature and history. In addition to the marginalization that they typically undergo in literary and historical studies, translation, gender, and race all entail the same kind of mediating process. A close look at what happens when translators translate and when writers treat gender and race shows that literature is less an objective expression of universal values than an ideological expression of local values. This volume highlights key issues in the theory and practice of translation by providing both original works and their translations, as well as essays on the issues involved in translating gender and race. Since those issues include both the gender and the cultural background of translators, it is significant to note that the translations given here have been produced by women of French, American, and African American origins. Their efforts make accessible the work of three women writers who differ in historical context, social class, political views, and attitudes toward women's issues - Olympe de Gouges, Germaine de Stael, and Claire de Duras. This volume thereby maintains in some measure the tradition of women's resistance to the hegemonic cultural and social practices that have adversely affected women and persons of color. Translating Slavery will appeal to readers and students interested in women's studies, black studies, 18th- and 19th-century French literature and history, comparative literature, and translation
