La poésie by Aimé Césaire( Book )

26 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La disparition dʹAimé Césaire, il y a un an, donna lieu à un surprenant concert de louanges médiatiques. Les obsèques nationales qui lui furent rendues, lʹempressement aussi unanime que tardif de la classe politique française, où perçait lʹaveu dʹune certaine mauvaise conscience, tout ceci ne doit pas faire oublier quʹAimé Césaire fut longtemps tenu à la marge. Homme de colère plutôt que de compromis, il est avant tout lʹauteur dʹune œuvre poétique enfiévrée, enchantée, dont les premiers mots résonnent encore avec une violence nue: "Au bout du petit matin ... / Va-tʹen, lui disais-je, gueule de flic, gueule de vache, va-tʹen je déteste les larbins de lʹordre et les hannetons de lʹespérance." (Cahier dʹun retour au pays natal). Sous le titre général La Poésie, cette œuvre fut rassemblée au Seuil pour la première fois en 1994, puis reéditée en 2006. Elle est à nouveau remise en vente. -- Description from (Oct. 19, 2011)

Includes remembrances of fellow artists and readings from their diaries and works
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

31 editions published between 1962 and 1986 in 5 languages and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

3 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 177 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
