A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Carrie Noland approaches Negritude as an experimental, text-based poetic movement developed by diasporic authors of African descent through the means of modernist print culture. Engaging primarily the works of Aime Cesaire and Leon-Gontran Damas, Noland shows how the demands of print culture alter the personal voice of each author, transforming an empirical subjectivity into a hybrid, textual entity that she names, after Theodor Adorno, an aesthetic subjectivity. This aesthetic subjectivity, transmitted by the words on the page, must be actualized-performed, reiterated, and created anew-by each reader, at each occasion of reading. Lyric writing and lyric reading therefore attenuate the link between author and phenomenalized voice. Yet the Negritude poem insists upon its connection to lived experience even as it emphasizes its printed form. Ironically, a purely formalist reading would have to ignore the ways formal-and not merely thematic-elements point toward the poem s own conditions of emergence. Blending archival research on the historical context of Negritude with theories of the lyric voice, Noland argues that Negritude poems present a challenge to both form-based (deconstructive) theories and identity-based theories of poetic representation. Through close readings, she reveals that the racialization of the author places pressure on a lyric regime of interpretation, obliging us to reconceptualize the relation of author to text in poetries of the first person.

Synopsis :

This book approaches Negritude as an experimental, text-based poetic movement developed by diasporic authors of African descent through the means of modernist print culture. Engaging primarily the works of Aime Cesaire and Leon Gontran Damas, Carrie Noland shows how the demands of modernist print culture alter the personal voice of each author, transforming an empirical subjectivity into a hybrid, textual entity that she names, after Theodor Adorno, an "aesthetic subjectivity." This aesthetic subjectivity, transmitted by the words on the page, must be actualized -- performed, reiterated, and created anew -- by each reader, at each occasion of reading. Lyric writing and lyric reading therefore attenuate the link between author and phenomenalized voice. Yet the Negritude poem insists upon its connection to lived experience even as it emphasizes its inscriptive support. Ironically, a purely formalist reading would have to ignore the ways in which formal -- and not merely thematic -- elements point toward the poem's own conditions of emergence. Blending archival research on the historical context of Negritude with theories of the lyric "voice," Noland argues that Negritude poems present a challenge to both form-based (deconstructive) theories and identity-based theories of poetic representation. Through close readings, she reveals that the racialization of the author places pressure on a lyric regime of interpretation, obliging us to reconceptualize the relation of author to text in poetries of the first person.

Critique:

Carrie Noland offers a timely warning about the tendency to treat literature as a whole as an adjunct to sociopolitical reality. Voices of Negritude in Modernist Print boldly explores the tensions between formally experimental verse and the prevailing identity politics of postcolonial theory. -- J. Michael Dash, New York University Carrie Noland's Voices of Negritude in Modernist Print is a landmark work, inaugurating a decisive and crucial advance in our understanding of the poets of Negritude. Noland argues compellingly for a text-centered interpretive practice, one that attends to the determinations of the print medium understood as an aesthetic regime independent of the author's scribal utterance, and the struggle to construct what she terms, following Adorno, an 'aesthetic subjectivity' immanent to the text itself. This path-breaking and original work gathers together the various studies of Negritude poetry of the preceding decades to make an informed, compelling, and necessary intervention into the heart of francophone studies. -- Nick Nesbitt, Princeton University With restless, relentless 'attention to the letter,' Carrie Noland demonstrates that the poetic innovations of C saire and Damas were first of all major modernist interventions, deeply engaged with the textual sphere of experimental print culture in the interwar period. These virtuosic, revisionary readings are an exhilarating model of what it means to do Diasporic literary criticism today. -- Brent Hayes Edwards, author of The Practice of Diaspora
