Postcolonial Poetics

Liverpool University Press

One of the distinguishing, and also critically overlooked, features of Guadeloupian female author, Maryse Condé's work has been the significant number of interviews she has given in various media in both the United States and France. This chapter discusses Maryse Condé's interviews. It considers the mobile sets of representations that she makes of the Guadeloupian, French, and North American fields of reception, drawing out the relationships between literature and criticism, the author, her fiction, and her readers that are constructed in the interviews.

Keywords:   Maryse Condé, interviews, literature, criticism, women authors, women writers
