Ananda Devi: Feminism, Narration and Polyphony is the 1st full-length monograph dedicated to Ananda Devi, a dynamic modern Francophone author. Recipient of Prix Louis-Guilloux and Prix Télévision Suisse Romande du Roman, she is defined via many as a prototype of a brand new new release of Mauritian writers. This e-book analyses Devi's unconventional polyphonic narratives, rather, her innovations that let marginalized narrators to disrupt androcentric and dominant buildings of narrative development, thereby developing hybrid magical areas for female expression. Drawing at the thought of feminist narratology that investigates the relation among gender and narrative, this publication makes a speciality of a variety of Western and non-Western narrative suggestions akin to plot and plotlessness, narrative metalepsis, pluritemporality, multisubjectivity, myths, folktales and magic. It additionally demonstrates how her texts develop into the purpose of convergence of the West and the non-West, the female and the androcentric, the true and the extra-real as muted discourses resurface and standard differences among different types are blurred in want of exchange and new probabilities. As this e-book is interdisciplinary in its method, it's going to attract a wide diversity of viewers from these drawn to modern Francophone and Indian-Ocean Literature to students in Women's Writing, Post-Colonial reviews, and Narratology

Sample text

While others in Sad’s gang dislike her, he not only admires her for her immense courage, but also adores and worships her: “Ève, à la chevelure de nuit écumeuse, quand elle passe dans ses jeans moulants, les autres ricanent et grincent des dents, mais moi, j’ai envie de m’agenouiller. Elle ne nous regarde pas. Elle n’a pas peur de nous. Elle a sa solitude pour armure” (16). Despite his friend’s hatred for Ève, Sad continues to love her: “Les autres se moquent de moi. Ils parlent d’elle, l’accablent, chantent des chansons ordurières.

Ve’s indifference, however, fails to stifle Sad’s spirits. Ignoring the outer reality of Ève’s body, Sad plunges into her troubles, innocence, and being to become one with her body and her misery. Through this union, he desires to submit himself completely to his love and become a source of happiness and strength for Ève: Personne ne sait qu’on peut aimer comme ça, à dix-sept ans. Je baigne dans l’eau nocturne d’Ève. Je plonge dans sa vision trouble. Je me noie dans sa boue, dans son innocence.

She later removes her sari and stands naked in front of her husband, prohibiting him all access to her body: Regarde ce corps que tu ne toucheras plus jamais. Regarde ce qui t’est à présent interdit. Regarde ces lieux sombres et touffus. Regarde ces endroits que tu ne visiteras jamais. Regarde ces formes qui ont bien changé depuis le jour lointain où tu les as massacrées. Regarde ce dont tu vas rêver pour le restant de tes jours et qui ne t’appartiendra pas. Regarde ce ventre qui ne portera pas d’enfant de toi.
