Childhood, Autobiography and the Francophone Caribbean

By (author) Hardwick, Louise

Childhood, Autobiography and the Francophone Caribbean sets out to examine a major modern turn in Francophone Caribbean literature towards the recit d'enfance and to ask why this occurred post-1990, connecting texts to recent changes in public policy and education policy concerning the commemoration of slavery and colonialism both in France and at a global level. Combining approaches from Postcolonial Theory, Psychoanalysis, Trauma Theory and Gender Studies, the book examines key works by major contemporary writers such as Patrick Chamoiseau, Maryse Conde and Dany Laferriere.
