La Grande Drive des esprits de Gisèle Pineau : le roman d’une écrivaine guadeloupéenne à la recherche d’une passe entre réalisme et merveilleux

Abstract : Gisèle Pineau's novel La Grande Drive des esprits is set in a fairly realistic Guadeloupe between the 1930s and the1970s, and may remind readers of other novels by fellow Guadeloupean writer Maryse Condé. But it also conjures up the marvelous or even the magical aspects of yet another Guadeloupean novelist: Simone Schwarz-Bart. Pineau's novel thus invites confrontation with the notions of magical realism and/or marvelous realism often associated with Caribbean literature. These labels have been defined either from a narratological or from a broader cultural perspective. Pineau's narrative dislocates the time frame and alternates chapters written in a heterodiegetic voice with others in an autodiegetic one. Such aspects of the text raise questions about its inscription in a specific narrative mode such as marvelous realism, and about the (implied) author's position regarding the sociological or ideological issues brought up in the complex poetics of her first published novel.
