Rain Taxi" "[Cesaire's] writing bursts with intelligence, fervor and conviction. In her essays "Leo Frobenius and the Problems of Civilizations, "Alain and Esthetics," "Andre Breton, Poet," and "1943: Surrealism and Us," she mobilizes anthropology, philosophy, and poetry to awaken global black consciousness, resistance, and liberation..."--Gabrielle Civil "Rain Taxi" (4/1/2013 12:00:00 AM) "Suzanne's first six essays flow seamlessly to her last, 'The Great Camouflage.' ... What she would have produced had she continued to write after 1945 or lived beyond the age of fifty, we will never know. But one thing is certain: Suzanne Cesaire was a bright and shining light and a brilliant dissident for all time. The Great Camouflage is a spectacular achievement."--Tiffany Ruby Patterson "H-France Reviews" (6/1/2014 12:00:00 AM) "The Great Camouflage is most welcome. Non-Francophones sorely needed to have access to Suzanne Cesaire's writings, and the translating work of Keith L. Walker and editing by Daniel Maximin deliver."--Alex Gil "New West Indian Guide" (1/1/2014 12:00:00 AM) "Provide[s] fascinating insights into [Cesaire's] time and on this remarkable writer."--Jean Khalfa "Wasafiri" (12/1/2014 12:00:00 AM) The Great Camouflage is most welcome.

Reseña del editor:

The Great Camouflage translates and assembles in one volume the seven articles Suzanne Cesaire wrote for the cultural journal Tropiques. Cesaire engages anthropology, esthetics, surrealism, history, and poetry as she grapples with questions of power and deception, self-deception, the economic slipknot of a post-slavery debt system, identity and inauthenticity, bad faith, psychological and affective aberration, and cultural zombification. All are caught in the web of "the great camouflage." The collection provides a multifaceted portrait of Cesaire, and includes short writings from others who wrote passionately about her, including Andre Breton, Andre Masson, Rene Menil, Daniel Maximin, and her husband Aime Cesaire and daughter,Ina Cesaire.
