Dans ce pamphlet paru en 1950, Aimé Césaire, poète, dramaturge et homme politique, dénonce les réalités de la colonisation, incompatible avec l'épanouissement d'une civilisation. Son analyse lucide et corrosive du colonialisme provoque encore aujourd'hui des réactions de la part de ceux qui cherchent encore à justifier cette période
Une saison au Congo by Aimé Césaire ( Book )
53 editions published between 1966 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'Afrique au temps du vertige des indépendances reconquises. De temps en temps, une grande et haute figure. Au Congo, celle de Patrice Lumumba. Homme politique. Sans doute le seul du Congo, et le plus grand de l'Afrique. C'est qu'il y a en lui du voyant et du poète. A travers cet homme que sa stature même semble désigner pour le mythe, toute l'histoire d'un continent et d'une humanité se joue de manière exemplaire et symbolique
La tragédie du roi Christophe; théâtre by Aimé Césaire ( Book )
72 editions published between 1963 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La tragédie du roi Christophe est une œuvre barbare (au sens noble du terme) lyrique et nécessaire. Affirmant que la politique est la force moderne du destin et l'histoire la politique vécue, Aimé Césaire donne à voir l'invention du futur, d'un futur enraciné. L'aventure haïtienne de Christophe ebvoque le destin collectif du peuple africain d'aujourd'hui. A la phase de la révolte aiguë a succédé celle de la re-connaissance, de la constitution d'un patrimoine authentique et librement assumé. -- Back cover

The original 1939 notebook of a Return to the native land by Aimé Césaire ( )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 411 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

La poésie by Aimé Césaire ( Book )
23 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 365 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 http://livre.fnac.com (Oct. 19, 2011)
Ferrements; poèmes by Aimé Césaire ( Book )
17 editions published between 1960 and 1991 in French and Undetermined and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Solar throat slashed : the unexpurgated 1948 edition by Aimé Césaire ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 265 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
