The literature of French-speaking countries forms a distinct body of work quite separate from literature written in France itself, offering a passionate creative engagement with their postcolonial cultures. This book provides an introduction to the literatures that have emerged in the French-speaking countries and regions of the world in recent decades, illustrating their astonishing breadth and diversity, and exploring their constant state of tension with the literature of France. The study opens with a wide-ranging discussion of the idea of francophonie. Each chapter then provides readers with historical background to a particular region and identifies the key issues that have influenced the emergence of a literature in French, before going on to examine in detail a selection of the major writers. These case studies tackle many of the key authors of the francophone world, as well as authors writing today.

In central Brussels stands a statue of a young woman. Built in 1923, it is the first monument to a working-class woman in European history. Her name was Gabrielle Petit. History has forgotten Petit, an ambitious and patriotic Belgian, executed by firing squad in 1916 for her role as an intelligence agent for the British Army. After the First World War she was celebrated as an example of stern endeavour, but a hundred years later her memory has faded. In the first part of this historical biography Sophie De Schaepdrijver uses Petit's life to explore gender, class and heroism in the context of occupied Europe. Petit's experiences reveal the reality of civilian engagement under military occupation and the emergence of modern espionage. The second part of the book focuses on the legacy and cultural memory of Petit and the First World War. By analysing Petit's representation in ceremony, discourse and popular culture De Schaepdrijver expands our understanding of remembrance across the 20th century.

As one of the leading proponents of the nouveau roman, Nathalie Sarraute is often remembered for her novels, including The Golden Fruits, which earned her the Prix international de litterature in 1964. But her carefully crafted and evocative memoir Childhood may in fact be Sarraute’s most accessible and emotionally open work. Written when the author was eighty-three years old, but dealing with only the first twelve years of her life, Childhood is constructed as a dialogue between Sarraute and her memory. Sarraute gently interrogates her interlocutor in search of her own intentions, more precise accuracy, and indeed, the truth. Her relationships with her mother in Russia and her stepmother in Paris are especially heartbreaking: long-gone actions are prodded and poked at by Sarraute until they yield some semblance of fact, imbuing these maternalistic interactions with new, deeper meaning. Each vignette is bristling with detail and shows the power of memory through prose by turns funny, sad, and poetic. Capturing the ambience of Paris and Russia in the earliest part of the twentieth century, while never giving up the lyrical style of Sarraute’s novels, this book has much to offer both memoir enthusiasts and fiction lovers.

Nouvelle traversée. Le Maître comme capitaine "voguant immatériel sur les cimes du savoir universel", grand pourfendeur de sabir créole, négateur des fastes de la culture dominée. "0 vertige mi ! Tête perdue !" Le négrillon aura "des temps de blonde enfance, rouge aux joues et yeux bleus". Retour à la langue-manman quand il fallait lâcher l'émotion, balancer un senti, s'exprimer longtemps. Retour au pays natal et à la parole de Gros-Lombric, un petit bougre, noir bleuté, maître-force en magie créole qui, jour après jour, ramène des confins de l'En-ville des contes de zombis, des Chouval-trois-pattes, les bels passages de Foiseau-glanglan, les vertus des poules-frisées, les coups-de-cervelles de Tijean-Lorizon. Gros-Lombric, le double, écolier marron de l'École coloniale. De la confrontation de ces deux trajectoires, le négrillon tirera la substance de son écriture.

Using the playful, orally inspired, and partially invented language for which he is renowned, Patrick Chamoiseau recalls the brilliant, magical universe of his early childhood in Martinique. At the center of this universe is his extraordinarily vigorous mother and her creative, pragmatic ways of coping with poverty and five children. As Chamoiseau presents these first impressions of an exceptional child growing up in a rich Creole culture, he also reflects in oblique but incisive ways on colonialism. He probes the boundary between reality and imagination, between the child?s awakening understanding and the adult?s memory of those earlier days.

School Days (Chemin-d’Ecole) is a captivating narrative based on Patrick Chamoiseau’s childhood in Fort-de-France, Martinique. It is a revelatory account of the colonial world that shaped one of the liveliest and most creative voices in French and Caribbean literature today. Through the eyes of the boy Chamoiseau, we meet his severe, Francophile teacher, a man intent upon banishing all remnants of Creole from his students’ speech. This domineering man is succeeded by an equally autocratic teacher, an Africanist and proponent of “Negritude.” Along the way we are also introduced to Big Bellybutton, the class scapegoat, whose tales of Creole heroes and heroines, magic, zombies, and fantastic animals provide a fertile contrast to the imported French fairy tales told in school. In prose punctuated by Creolisms and ribald humor, Chamoiseau infuses the universal terrors, joys, and disappointments of a child’s early school days with the unique experiences of a Creole boy forced to confront the dominant culture in a colonial school. School Days mixes understanding with laughter, knowledge with entertainment—in ways that will fascinate and delight readers of all ages.
Les étapes majeures de l'enfance

Les étapes majeures sont, dans la trajectoire de l'enfant, ces moments de passage intenses mais critiques qu'il doit traverser pour arriver à l'adolescence, puis à l'âge adulte. Le sevrage, la motricité, la propreté, les relations avec les autres sont les épreuves mêmes sur lesquelles il se construit à la conquête de son autonomie. Forte de son expérience de thérapeute et de sa vie familiale, Françoise Dolto nous montre dans des exemples de vie quotidienne comment les difficultés non résolues dans l'éducation provoquent la souffrance. Elle nous invite à 'parler vrai', à adopter une 'attitude flexible, vivante, toujours en éveil, à l'écoute'. Sans cesse, Françoise Dolto nous dit que le petit d'homme est un être de langage et que l'éduquer c'est le rendre autonome, 'lui donner les règles, les repères, les interdits majeurs qui lui assureront cette sécurité existentielle qui seule peut soutenir son dynamisme et les forces vives de son désir'.
