American Creoles : the Francophone Caribbean and the American South by Martin Munro( )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In American Creoles, leading authorities examine the cultural, social, and historical affinities between the Francophone Caribbean and the American South. The essays focus on issues of history, language, politics, and culture in various forms and consider figures as diverse as Barack Obama, Frantz Fanon, Miles Davis, James Brown, Edouard Glissant, William Faulkner, and Lafcadio Hearn. Exploring the ideas of Creole culture and creolization--terms rooted in the history of contact between European and African people and cultures in the Americas--the essays provide productive ways to conceive of the larger Caribbean as a single cultural and historical entity

The nouveau roman : fiction, theory, and politics by Celia Britton( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Nouveau Roman writers have been actively involved in the theory as well as the practice of literature. Rather than simply using one of these to explain the other, this study aims to read fiction and theory together, as a corpus of texts evolving in interaction with each other. This leads to new critical interpretations of some of the novels. But the theoretical development is also affected by the wider intellectual context that the novelists - Robbe-Grillet, Sarraute, Simon, Butor and Ricardou - have worked within; they were from the outset caught up in a series of lively and often vehement debates on the political significance of literature, formalism and structuralism, the status of the author, etc. Their use of theory is essentially strategic, initially defining and legitimising them as a group. The impact of figures such as Sartre, Barthes, Levi-Strauss, Foucault, Sollers and Kristeva is analysed."--Jacket
Language and literary form in French Caribbean writing by Celia Britton( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyses French Caribbean writing from the point of view of its language and literary form - questions which, until recently, were somewhat neglected in postcolonial studies, but are now becoming an important area of research. Britton supplements postcolonial theory with structuralism and poststructuralism to show how analysis of the text illuminates the political and ideological positions of the writers. Topics including genre, intertextuality, narrative voice, discursive agency, orality, the 'creolization' of languages and the renewal of realism are discussed in relation to Glissant, Césaire, Ménil, Chamoiseau, Confiant, Depestre, Condé, Schwarz-Bart, Pineau and Maximin. -- Publisher's description
Race and the unconscious : Freudianism in French Caribbean thought by Celia M Britton( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study Britton looks at the different ways in which Freudian psychoanalysis has been incorporated into arguments about racial identity and difference in the French Caribbean. Freud is often accused of Eurocentrism and in particular of making unjustifiable generalizations on the basis of European family structures. Although French Caribbean intellectuals such an Fanon, Cesaire and Glissant have joined in these criticisms, they have also made strikingly positive use of psychoanalysis. Much intellectual energy has been invested in notions of repression, the Oedipus complex and the psychoanalytic cure, while at the same time Freudianism has been no less vigorously criticized for its political quietism and its potential as a means of social control. Thus Freudian theory, and the controversies it arouses, remains a surprisingly persistent element in Caribbean culture. The crucial issue is the link between the unconscious and race." --Book Jacket

Race and the Unconscious : Freudianism in French Caribbean Thought by Celia Britton( )
