Description

Annette Smith and Dominic Thomas's new translations of Aime Cesaire's Like a Misunderstood Salvation and Solar Throat Slashed (poems deleted) expose to a new audience a pivotal figure in twentieth-century French literature. This collection presents the early and last stages of a po-et's course, encapsulating in one volume Cesaire's entire literary career and creative evolution as perhaps the only French poet writing simultaneously at the crossroads of the avant-garde and classical movements.

This volume's inclusion of previously deleted poems from Solar Throat Slashed is politically important; despite their initial exclusion from a French republication of Soleil Cou Coupe in 1961, these thirty-one poems are crucial to understanding Cesaire's legacy and remain of tremendous pertinence today as they provide helpful ways of thinking about and contextualizing discussions on race, identity, global identities, and the links between "black conscious-ness" and "social consciousness."
