Hist in French Caribbean Lit

This course studies the period of post-colonial literary history of Caribbean and French West Indies literatures through the famous novels of Patrick Chamoiseau (Texaco), Maryse Condé (Moi, Tituba, sorcière noire de Salem), Dany Laferrière (Pays sans chapeau) and Gisèle Pineau (L’exil selon Julia). The narratives of these francophone writers examine the problems of identity of the people born in the Caribbean (Haiti, Guadeloupe or Martinique) trying to deal with ideologies of liberation or progress. We will analyze anti-colonial figures (both men and women) and aspects of the Creole language in these works of art.
