"Linking Africa and the Caribbean, orality to writing, Larrier presents an important study of women’s empowerment in contemporary francophone literature."--Mildred Mortimer, University of Colorado

"A ‘page turner’, well-conceptualized scholarship that surely will have a long--very long--life in the field. A wonderful resource . . . that scholars, students, and teachers will find useful."--Janis A. Mayes, Syracuse University

Examining narratives from a wide variety of countries and traditions in francophone Africa and the Caribbean, Renée Larrier argues that women writers reappropriate their specific oral tradition by creating woman-centered/woman-narrated texts. Female characters telling their own stories subvert stereotypes found in literature and popular culture.Larrier discusses the inscription of women’s voices on sites as varied as pot lids, wall paintings, and cloth before focusing on prose works from Cameroon, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Mali, Martinique, and Senegal. In so doing, she reconnects the authors of Africa and the diaspora who articulate women’s perspectives and empower their communities. A significant comparative study, Francophone Women Writers of Africa and the Caribbean marks a major contribution to an exciting field of inquiry.Renée Larrier is associate professor of French at Rutgers University and coeditor, with E. Anthony Hurley and Joseph McLaren, of Migrating Words and Worlds: Pan-Africanism Updated.

Caribbean, by Renée Larrier. have appeared on francophone African (and Caribbean) women's voices. the doxa of African women writers

In recent years, a growing number of critical works have appeared on francophone African (and Caribbean) women's voices. In turn, Têko-Agbo's article salutes the two women novelists' innovativeness, but for the wrong reasons: they are daring in their efforts to distinguish themselves from what he calls the doxa of African women writers. That a book on African women writers would engage in belittling female writing, that it would reproduce in its mere structure the silencing of women, is surprising, to say the least.

The women writers of Africa are the other voices, the unheard voices. Within the very recent tradition of written literature from black Africa, writing by African women has been very much in the margins of an art that is only just beginning to move out of the margins itself.

Renée LarrierRutgers University, author of Francophone Women Writers of Africa and the Caribbean. A Rain of Words is a groundbreaking book that will undoubtedly make a major contribution to the fields of African, women's, francophone, literary, and translation studies. This superb anthology not only fills a void but will stimulate interest in the genre of poetry as well. The range of countries and generations included in this project is astounding.

Caribbean literature is the term generally accepted for the literature of the various territories of the Caribbean region. Literature in English specifically from the former British West Indies may be referred to as Anglo-Caribbean or, in historical contexts, West Indian literature, although in modern contexts the latter term is rare. Most of these territories have become independent nations since the 1960s, though some retain colonial ties to the United Kingdom.
