Summary
"Sounding Off attends to how sounds function in such novels as Ousmane Sembene's God's Bits of Wood (Senegal), Ahmadou Kourouma's The Suns of Independence (Cote d'Ivoire), and Patrick Chamoiseau's Solibo Magnificent (Martinique). These writers - like composers - create distinct soundscapes, constructing transpoetic and transcultural links that resonate. The voices, cadences, and sonorities in these narratives create a rich soundtrack to the characters' lives, framing them with a rhythmic polyphony that helps form social and cultural identities. Huntington's analysis shows how these writers and others challenge the aesthetic and political conventions that privilege written texts over orality and invite readers-listeners to participate in critical dialogues - to sound off, as it were, in local and global communities."--BOOK JACKET
