Valérie Loichot’s Orphan Narratives: The Postplantation Literature of Faulkner, Glissant, Morrison, and Saint-John Perse explores the ways plantation culture and its powerful reverberations stretch from the Caribbean through the United States South to the Midwest in the writings of four authors imbricated in that culture. Reading elements of what she calls the postplantation as hemispherically widespread, she presents a methodology of approaching this topic that could have a significant impact on framing Caribbean-United States critical discourse.
