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 through many as a prototype of a brand new iteration of Mauritian writers. This publication analyses Devi's unconventional polyphonic narratives, fairly, her options that permit marginalized narrators to disrupt androcentric and dominant constructions of narrative building, thereby developing hybrid magical areas for female expression. Drawing at the idea of feminist narratology that investigates the relation among gender and narrative, this e-book specializes in a variety of Western and non-Western narrative innovations 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 genuine and the extra-real as muted discourses resurface and conventional differences among different types are blurred in desire of trade and new chances. As this e-book is interdisciplinary in its method, it is going to attract a huge variety of viewers from these attracted to modern Francophone and Indian-Ocean Literature to students in Women's Writing, Post-Colonial experiences, and Narratology

Sample text

By pronouncing her own sermons instead of those chanted by the pundit, she denounces traditional customs, thus reinventing or rewriting them to fulfill her own desire for revenge. The Phera ceremony, in which the bride and the bridegroom make vows to strengthen and sanctify the bond of marriage, seems like a series of senseless gestures to Pagli: Au moment où on nous a attachés l’un à l’autre pour faire le tour du feu, la nuit nous a enveloppés. Il n’y avait rien de sacré dans notre union, car il l’avait déjà désacralisée.

In each life, they are destined to be together. This thought explains a certain surreal feeling of already knowing one’s partner due to one’s proximity in previous life. Pagli evokes this togetherness with Zil that goes beyond life and death. Whereas Pagli’s husband attacks and demeans her by his gaze, Zil shares his compassion and companionship, thereby making Pagli feel complete. ” Much like Zil, Pagli’s gaze, too, is significantly different from a male gaze that aims at highlighting gender differences.

C’est ainsi qu’il est, ainsi qu’il a toujours été. Mais il me semble à présent le découvrir seulement, et cela réveille en moi une ancienne révolte que je n’ai jamais vraiment comprise. Il a su créer en moi une alternance d’amour et d’indifférence, de mépris et de peur. Il a aliéné en moi tous les dons que j’aurais pu lui faire de moi-même, parce qu’il n’a jamais su, lui, se donner entièrement. (23) Dev’s inability to contribute in the relationship eventually frustrates her. Anjali confesses that circumstances, rather than her own desire, led to their union: “Une vie qui se déroulait en paliers successifs et presque anormalement logiques.
