The Negritude Moment: Explorations in Francophone African and Caribbean Literature and Thought

by F.Abiola Irele
£21.99   paperback  Africa Research & Publications (2011)

The Negritude Moment: Explorations in Francophone African and Caribbean Literature and Thought by F.Abiola Irele In this collection of essays, which span more than forty years of sustained scholarship, Irele explores the varied aspects of Negritude as a movement and as concept.
 
He provides an account of its historical origins and examines the sociological and ideological background of the themes that have preoccupied French-speaking black writers and intellectuals in their confrontation with the pressures of a difficult collective experience, in both its objective manifestations and its inward implications. The collection includes a rare essay on the structure of Aimé Césaire's imagery in its poetic transmutation of this experience.
 
Throughout the collection, distinguished by the clarity of his language, Irele pays attention to the debates Negritude has generated over the years and stresses the centrality of these debates to the emergence of a modern consciousness in the black world.
