a volcano called poetry

Bruno Doucey, Christian Epanya
Originally from Basse-Pointe, in Martinique, Aimé Césaire will make brilliant studies in Paris. A friend of Senghgor and Damas, he will invent with them Negritude ; the defence of black people’s values. A great poet, Aimé Césaire will also become a deputy and mayor of Fort-de-France during a life where poetic and political will only be one now.

  • Christian Epanya An admirer of the great poet, author, and politician of Martinique, and also author illustrator of Taxi-brousse de Papa Diop, Christian Epanya interprets here, with his pencils and brushes, the life of Aimé Césaire.

  • Office pour la Promotion et l'Animation des Livres pour la Jeunesse
  • "An excellent approach to the poet Aimé Césaire by the poet Bruno Doucey in beautiful evocative writing. The illustrations translate the beauty of the Martinique countryside and Aimé Césaire's rich journey. A key biography for a gleaming poet."

  • In less than 48 pages, which do include illustrated pages, Bruno Doucey, himself a poet and publisher, relates the life of Aimé Césaire. A real challenge, very successful at the beginning with a poetic text, full of imagery and becoming more factual later. (…) A good way to discover the life and commitment of Aimé Césaire.
