Historiographic Metafiction And The Neo-slave Narrative PDF

Christiane Hawkins

The classic slave narrative recounted a fugitive slaves personal story condemning slavery and hence working towards abolition. The neo-slave narrative underlines the slaves historical legacy by unveiling the past through foregrounding African Atlantic experiences in an attempt to create a critical historiography of the Black Atlantic. The neo-slave narrative is a genre that emerged following World War II and presents us with a dialogue combining the history of 1970 - 2000. In this book I seek to explore how the contemporary counter-part of the classic slave narrative draws, reflects or diverges from the general conventions of its predecessor. I argue that by scrutinizing our notion of truth, the neo-slave narrative remains a relevant, important witness to the history of slavery as well as to todays still racialized society. The historiographic metafiction of the neo-slave narrative rewrites history with the goal of digesting the past and ultimately leading to future reconciliation.

A “hybrid” combination of the slave narrative genre and speculative fiction aspects contributes the irony and self-reflection of historiographic metafiction, although in other ways Butler “does not attain that [requisite] level of parodic self-reflexivity.” That Kindred is a hybrid of genres means it … paule marshall - LIMAG Littératures du Maghreb

Multi-Award-Winning Novelist, Andrea Levy: Her … Levy’s compelling neo-slave novel, The Long Song, is a historiographic metafiction, a playfully self-conscious probing of the nature of narrative and the telling of history, this time from a slave perspective in an attempt to imaginatively reenter the harsh world of plantation society and give voice, agency and humanity to the enslaved.
