A propos de cet article

Language: French,English . Brand New Book. This book is a study of recent autobiographies by French and Francophone African writers and filmmakers, all of whom reject simple first-person narration and experiment with narrative voice and form to represent fragmented subjectivity. Gabara investigates autobiography across media, from print to photography and film, as well as across the colonial encounter, from France to Francophone North and West Africa. Reading works by Roland Barthes, Nathalie Sarraute, Assia Djebar, Cyril Collard, David Achkar, and Raoul Peck, she argues that autobiographical film and African autobiography, subgenres that have until now been overlooked or dismissed by critics, offer new and important possibilities for self-representation in the twenty-first century. Not only do these new forms of autobiography deserve our attention, but any study of contemporary autobiography is incomplete without them. N° de réf. du libraire AAJ9780804753562

Quatrième de couverture:

?Relying on excellent scholarship, Rachel Gabara's work has brought together both familiar and new material to bear on the vexed question of autobiography. An outstanding contribution to literary, cultural, and film studies, From Split to Screened Selves will have a real impact on a number of fields: postcolonial studies, comparative literature, French and Francophone studies, film studies, and autobiographical studies.??Panivong Norindr, University of Southern California
