|An Interview with Aime Cesaire||79|
If you're interested in post-colonial issues, this book stands out for the link it draws between the racism and violence of the colonial era and the racism and violence of totalitarianism in the Nazi Germany era. It's also an interesting mix of genres, treating historical issues with the stylistic panache of a writer who is a great poet. I read a book by Hannah Arendt on similar themes, (The Origins of Totalitarianism) which I would recommend also, but I preferred Cesaire's book because it was more succint and at times even funnier, which might seem like an odd quality to observe given the topic. A charismatic and insightful writer who was also a politician in his native Martinique. I wish we could have someone of his insight in our congress today!Was this review helpful?
