Decolonizing the Text (Francophone Cultures and Literatures) by Debra L. Anderson



Edouard Glissant's conception of history, literature, and Caribbean identity, antillanité, as exposed in his seminal work, Le Discours antillais, provides the critical underpinnings of the literary analyses presented in this work. This study derives from the works of the Martinician poet, novelist and theorist a reading that decolonizes the text. Glissant's poétique de la relation is the foundation that enables contemporary criticism to cross Dubois' «color line» and examine the métissage intertextuel manifest in the works of Toni Morrison, Patrick Chamoiseau, and William Faulkner.
