Blurb/Shorttext:
Independence has not yet taken place in the colonies. The colonized citizens "acceded to freedom" - if there is freedom - without understanding the colonial imaginary. This is why this study, based on the work of the French writer Erik Orsenna, highlights the awareness of the absurdity of the discursive apparatus of Western reason marked by abuse, double talk and supposedly universal values. The memory of this game inspires a consequent critical approach under the pen of the author. It also enshrines the deconstruction of the French "ivory tower," cultural insularity to the profit of cultural entanglement. Under the lights of postcolonial thought, drawing heavily on French otherness thinking and matching imagology, the author shows how Erik Orsenna, through his characters, brings to the fore "heterotopias," dissemination, and the principle of otherness that deconstruct the unitary constraint and the dominant French discourses of modernity. This essay thus repositions the debate in postcolonial literary criticism, as the sources of the critique of discursive infrastructure are renewed.
