The Francophone Caribbean today : literature, language, culture by Gertrud Aub-Buscher( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this volume consider various literary and linguistic aspects of the francophone Caribbean at the beginning of the twenty-first century, focusing particularly on the French Overseas Departments of Martinique and Guadeloupe, and the independent islands of Haiti and Dominica. The literary chapters are devoted to new voices in the region and the Caribbean diaspora, or to recent works by established authors. Contributors offer fresh interpretations of Caribbean literary movements and explore relevant non-literary issues, such as socio-political developments which have influenced the writers of today. The linguistic chapters examine the dynamics of the respective roles of Creole and the European standard language and consider the present viability of Creole as a literary medium."--Jacket

Mrs Beeton's book of household management by Beeton( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A founding text of Victorian middle-class identity, Household Management is today one of the great unread classics. Written when its author was only 22, it offered highly authoritative advice on subjects as diverse as fashion, child-care, animal husbandry, poisons, and the management of servants. To the modern reader expecting stuffy moralizing and watery vegetables, Beeton's book is a revelation: it ranges widely across the foods of Europe and beyond, actively embracing new food stuffs and techniques, mixing domestic advice with discussions of science, religion, class, industrialism, and gender roles. Alternately fashionable and frugal, anxious and blusteringly self-confident, Household Management highlights the concerns of the ever-expanding Victorian middle class at a key moment in its history." "This abridged edition does justice to its high status as a cookery book, while also suggesting ways of approaching this massive, hybrid text as a significant document of social and cultural history."--Jacket
Les théâtres francophones et créolophones de la Caraïbe : Haïti, Guadeloupe, Guyane, Martinique, Sainte-Lucie( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in French and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This set of studies on French and Creole theaters of the Caribbean region derives its originality from the identification of components of the theatrical practice as a distinct field of literature. The book examines the dramaturgy, directing, receiving critical and popular acclaim, as manifested in Guadeloupe, Guyana, Haiti, Martinique and St. Lucia. Without being exhaustive, the book examines theaters and French creole of the Caribbean as a precursor to the approach of scholars and observers of the Caribbean. It seeks to understand the originality of practice too long ignored or relegated to the shadow of the Western theatrical institution

The bridge of beyond by Simone Schwarz-Bart( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is an intoxicating tale of love and wonder, mothers and daughters, spiritual values and the grim legacy of slavery on the French Antillean island of Guadeloupe. Here long-suffering Telumee tells her life story and tells us about the proud line of Lougandor women she continues to draw strength from. Time flows unevenly during the long hot blue days as the madness of the island swirls around the villages, and Telumee, raised in the shelter of wide skirts, must learn how to navigate the adversities of a peasant community, the ecstasies of love, and domestic realities while arriving at her own precious happiness. In the words of Toussine, the wise, tender grandmother who raises her, "Behind one pain there is another. Sorrow is a wave without end. But the horse mustn't ride you, you must ride it." A masterpiece of Caribbean literature, "The Bridge of Beyond" relates the triumph of a generous and hopeful spirit, while offering a gorgeously lush, imaginative depiction of the flora, landscape, and customs of Gua-deloupe. Simone Schwarz-Bart's incantatory prose, interwoven with Creole proverbs and lore, appears here in a remarkable translation by Barbara Bray
