Valérie Loichot's comparative study of Edouard Glissant, William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, and Saint-John Perse is based on the assumption that these novelists and poets, American and Caribbean, Black and White, deal with the "mother/father divide. This chapter illustrates how the renaming as Saint-John Perse corresponds to a double gesture of self-referential signifying, sheltering from and testifying to the troublesome Plantation Americas. In chapter four, Loichot's uses two key concepts from Glissant, métissage and créolisation, to analyze Faulkner's Light in August.

Loichot is the author of Orphan Narratives: The Postplantation Literatures of Faulkner, Glissant, Morrison, and Saint-John Perse (University of Virginia Press, New World Studies, 2007) and The Tropics Bite Back: Culinary Coups in Caribbean Literature (University of Minnesota Press, 2013).

In Orphan Narratives, Valérie Loichot investigates the fiction and poetry of four writers who emerged from the postslavery plantation world of the Americas―William Faulkner (USA), Édouard Glissant (Martinique), Toni Morrison (USA), and Saint-John Perse (Guadeloupe)―to show how these descendants from slaves and from slaveholders wrote both in relation and in resistance to the violence of plantation slavery. She uses the term "orphan narrative" to capture the ways in which this violence severed the child, the text, and history from a traceable origin. Black or white, male or female, Antillean or American, these writers share a common inheritance and transnational connection through which their texts maintain familial, temporal, and narrative patterns without having any central authority figure.

The author specifically cites Saint-John Perse’s Éloges (1911), Faulkner’s Light in August (1932), Morrison’s Song of Solomon (1977), and Glissant’s La Case du commandeur (1981) as postslavery texts. Where the actual family is dismembered, these narrative accounts invent new familial links. Reciprocally, biological family ties endure despite the literal and discursive violence inflicted upon them.

Breaking new ground in trans-American studies by juxtaposing texts from the francophone Lesser Antilles and the U.S. South, Orphan Narratives will be a valuable addition to Caribbean, American, and postcolonial studies, not to mention its appeal to scholars and students of Faulkner, Glissant, Morrison, and Saint-John Perse.
