9780803227521: Rereading Camara Laye

In this controversial new study, Adele King retracts her earlier scholarship defending the single authorship of Camara Laye's L'Enfant noir (The Dark Child) and unearths new evidence to suggest that not only did Laye have more help writing L'Enfant noir than earlier believed but may in fact not have written his second novel Le Regard du roi (Radiance of the King) at all. Camara Laye arrived in France from his native Guinea in the early 1950s at the propitious moment when many African writers and intellectuals who favored the ideal of trying to build a union of France and its territories were welcomed and often supported by the Ministere de la France d'Outre-Mer (Ministry of France Overseas). Upon his arrival in France, Laye was encouraged by a member of the Assemblee de l'Union Francaise and other government agents to write a novel depicting his life in Guinea. With the resulting L'Enfant noir, he became one of the earliest modern African novelists. When a year later he published another novel, Le Regard du roi, both novels became seminal works of African fiction in French. Almost from the beginning, however, there were rumors that Laye had had more than a little help with L'Enfant noir, but they remained rumors only. In 1980 King herself wrote a defense of the author's independent work; but, in recent years new circumstantial evidence has surfaced that seriously calls into question Laye's authorship of Le Regard du roi and raises doubts about how much help he may have had in writing L'Enfant noir. Rereading Camara Laye contributes to our understanding of the terms of cultural production many African writers had to negotiate in France. King's findings also raise important questions about the collaboration, manipulation, personal ambition, political opportunism, and pragmatism which were significant factors in the survival of African writers and many others in the years following World War II. Adele King is an associate professor of French at Ball State University. She is the author of several books, including The Writings of Camara Laye.

Descrizione libro University of Nebraska Press, United States, 2005. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. New ed.. 223 x 175 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Camara Laye (1928-80) traveled to France from his native Guinea in 1947 on a scholarship to study automobile mechanics. While there, he was encouraged by a supporter of the French Union to record the memories of his childhood. The resulting book, L Enfant noir, was praised for its style and its uncritical attitude toward French colonization. A year later Laye published Le Regard du roi, a Kafkaesque story of a white man in Africa, which was very different in tone, style, and content from L Enfant noir and from any other African literature being published at the time. L Enfant noir and Le Regard du roi became seminal works of African fiction in French and were translated into English as The African Child and The Radiance of the King. Adele King met Camara Laye in 1978, two years before his death, and in 1980 published the principal study about him, The Writings of Camara Laye. In 1991 King set out to disprove rumors that Laye was not the author of one of his novels, Le Regard du roi. Instead she became convinced that the rumors were true and in the process unexpectedly discovered a far more interesting story about the creation of Laye as an author and public figure. Rereading Camara Laye describes King s research, which has taken more than ten years. Her inquiry involved finding those who knew Laye in Paris in the 1950s and interviewing them when possible as well as examining documents in libraries and archives in France and Belgium. King s findings provide important insights into French publishing and colonial politics in the years following World War II. She also shows how interpretations of Laye s novels have been shaped by the assumption that they were written by an African. Codice libro della libreria AAC9780803227521
