Maryse Condé and the Ethics of Interpretation

Unknown - 2008
Rate this:
While rejecting a conception of literature as moral philosophy, or a device for imparting particular morals to the reader through exemplary characters and plots, Maryse Condé has displayed throughout her writing career a strong valorization of literature as ethical critique. This study examines her singular approach to literary commitment as a critical reworking of aesthetic models and modes of interpretation. Focusing on four dominant problematics in Condé's work--history and globalization in La Belle Créole and Moi, Tituba sorcière ... noire de Salem, intertextuality and reception in La migrat.
