Review Moi Tituba sorcière

Moi Tituba sorcière Characters ò 2 Maryse Condé Ë 2 Characters Review Moi Tituba sorcière Fille de l'esclave Abena violée par un marin anglais à bord d'un vaisseau négrier Tituba née à la Barbade est initiée aux pouvoirs surnaturels par Man Yaya guérisseuse et faiseuse de sorts Son mariage avec John Indien l'entraîne à Boston puis au vil. Wow Wow Wow I have no words I was recommended this book by my Black literature professor and I already knew that all of her recommendations slap so I don t know why I am as shocked as I am right now but this book man this book is it I Tituba Black Witch of Salem will go down as one of my favorites of 2020 if not of all time Before we get into it and boy we will get into it I would look to draw your attention to the wonderful Maryse Cond who crafted this masterpiece Maryse Cond is a Guadeloupean novelist critic and playwright and all her works explore the African diaspora that resulted from slavery and colonialism in the Caribbean She writes in French and if you re able to speak the language I d highly advise reading her work in the original because damn this woman can write but her novels have been translated into English German Dutch Italian Spanish Portuguese and Japanese so make sure to check them outAll her novels explore racial gender and cultural issues in a variety of historical eras and locales so there should be something for everyone s liking S gou is set in the 19th century Bamabara Empire of Mali The Tree of Life concerns itself with the building of the Panama Canal in the 20th century and its influence on increasing the West Indian middle class and then in I Tituba Black Witch of Salem she treats us to a uniue and never been done before look at the Salem witch trials at the end of the 17th century in colonial Massachusetts Another book worth mentioning is Windward Heights her very own adaption of Wuthering Heights in a Caribbean setting I know that this will be the next Cond that I ll write I ve been dying to get my hands on an explicitly Black Heathcliff for years nowMaryse Cond has kept considerable distance from most Caribbean literary movements such as Negritude and Creolit and has often focused on topics with strong feminist and political concerns A radical activist in her work as well as in her personal life Cond has admitted I could not write anything unless it has a certain political significance I have nothing else to offer that remains importantNow that I ve hopefully piued your interest in Maryse Cond s writing let s get into the historical background of Tituba since it ll explain why Cond s book is so brave and necessary Tituba was the first woman to be accused of practicing witchcraft during the 1692 Salem witch trials She was enslaved and owned by Samuel Parris of Danvers Massachusetts Although her origins are debated research has suggested that she was a South American native and sailed from Barbados to New England with Samuel ParrisLittle is known regarding Tituba s life prior to her enslavement She became a pivotal figure in the witch trials when she confessed to witchcraft while also making claims that both Sarah Good and Sarah Osborne participated in said witchcraft She was imprisoned and later released by Samuel Conklin but little to nothing is known about Tituba s life following her subseuent release Maryse Cond has taken it upon herself to breathe life into this woman s life story In her fictitious account of her life I Tituba Black Witch of Salem Maryse Cond moves Tituba from the margins to which she was condemned by historians and scholars alike to the centre In the true fashion of the postcolonial practice of writing back Maryse Cond gives voice to a woman that history has neglected and tossed aside for way too long In recent years works such as Jean Rhys s Wide Sargasso Sea JM Coetzee s Foe and Peter Carey s Jack Maggs which write back to classic English texts have attracted considerable attention as offering a paradigm for the relationship between postcolonial writing and the canon Like Toni Morrison once said the absence of Blackness or people of color to put it in broader terms is also a presence it lingers in every work of white classic literature that we read When we read books by white authors that feature only white characters and were intended for a white audience the uestion about the other are always subconsciously on our minds Where are the people of color in these narratives Through writing back postcolonial writers manage to place people of color right back at the centres of narratives where they belong I think a lot of people would benefit from reading and engaging with postcolonial literature as it makes ourselves aware of the gaps in our bookshelves our education our minds it centres voices that have been silenced for way too long Therefore I Tituba Black Witch of Salem is a must read for everyone It cannot be that revered classics about the Salem witch trials don t mention Tituba at all or place her at the sidelines with next to no significance like Arthur Miller s The CrucibleJe hurlai et plus je hurlais plus j prouvais le d sire de hurler De hurler ma souffrance ma r volte mon impuissante col re uel tait ce monde ui avait fait de moi une esclave une orpheline une paria uel tait ce monde ui me s parait des miens ui m obligeait vivre parmi des gens ui ne parlaient pas ma langue ui ne partageaient pas ma religion dans un pays malgracieux peu avenanttranslation I screamed and the I screamed the I felt the desire to scream To scream out my suffering my revolt my impotent anger What was this world that had made me a slave an orphan an outcast What was this world that separated me from my own What was this world that forced me to live among people who did not speak my language who did not share my religion in a country that was crude and not very accommodatingIn the Cond s novel Tituba is biracial born on Barbados to a young African slave woman who was raped by an English sailor Tituba s mother is hanged after defending herself from the sexual advances of her white owner Tituba is run off the plantation and becomes a maroon having no owner but not able to connect to society She grows up living with an old spiritual herbalist named Mama Yaya whom I absolutely adored like she was the best and learning about traditional healing methods She falls in love and marries a slave John Indian willing to return to slavery on his behalf This is just the first of many uestionable choices Tituba makes for her loversShortly thereafter Tituba and John Indian are sold to Samuel Parris the Puritan clergyman known historically for bringing about the Salem Witch Trials Parris takes Tituba and John Indian to Boston then to Salem Village where Tituba is accused of witchcraft and arrested Tituba is thrown into a cell with a pregnant Hester Prynne the heroine from Nathaniel Hawthorne s novel The Scarlet Letter The bond that these women form I cannot put into words how much their relationship and love and care for each other meant to me Like Cond really did thatTituba survives the trials by confessing and is sold as a servant to a Jewish merchant Benjamin Cohen d Azevedo She cares for Benjamin and his nine children until the Puritans set fire to the house killing all the children He decides to set her free and sends her back to BarbadosTituba initially stays with a group of maroons sleeping with their leader Christopher who dreams of immortality She returns to the shack where she had lived with Mama Yaya and works as a healing herbalist for the slaves in the area The slaves bring her a young man Iphigene who they thought would die but Tituba nurses him back to health He plans a revolt against the plantation owners The night before the revolt the couple are arrested They and his followers are hanged Tituba and Iphigene join the spirit realm inciting future revolts whenever possibleMaryse Cond really manages to make Tituba come to life No matter how unbelievable some of the things that happen to her are Tituba always feels real She is very human with the ability to make mistakes Many of her irrational and seemingly illogical decisions are inspired by listening to her heart not her head She is perhaps one of the most relatable characters in historical fiction possessing very modern views on sexual liberation and showing respect for the beliefs of others which differ from her own I Tituba Black Witch of Salem is despite its heavy themes SUCH A FUN BOOK I know a bit weird but Maryse Cond writes in such a fun fresh inspiring and empowering way you cannot help to fall in love with Tituba Her wit her sarcasm the way she details the hypocrisy of the often religious societies that she finds herself in This novel is such a treat It made me so damn happy It s such a playful novel that still manages to tear on your heartstrings This book is everything

There would never ever be a careful sensitive biography recreating my life and its suffering The Guadeloupean author Maryse Cond was the first and probably the last given its one off purpose winner of The New Academy Prize in Literature create after the problems that prevented the Nobel Prize being awarded this year See The citation readMaryse Cond is a grand storyteller Her authorship belongs to world literature In her work she describes the ravages of colonialism and the postcolonial chaos in a language which is both precise and overwhelming The magic the dream and the terror is as also love constantly present Fiction and reality overlap each other and people live as much in an imagined world with long and complicated traditions as the ongoing present Respectfully and with humour she narrates the postcolonial insanity disruption and abuse but also human solidarity and warmth The dead live in her stories closely to the living in a multitudinous world where gender race and class are constantly turned over in new constellationsHer 1986 novel Moi Tituba sorci re noire de Salem was translated into English in 1992 as I Tituba Black Witch of Salem by Richard Philcox her husband and well as her long term translatorIt tells the first person story of Tituba the alleged witch at the centre of the Salem witch trials but one pushed to the periphery in historical accounts of the incidents In the historical record both her origins but even her fate after the trials are at best vague her identity usually confined as she complains in the novel to a footnote a slave originating from the west indies and probably practising hoodoo Like I suspect many English language readers my literary recognition of Tituba stems from the Arthur Miller play The Crucible one Cond dismisses in an interview included in the book noting that while she had seen the play in the past during her research for this novel she didn t bother revisiting it I knew that Miller as a white male writer would not pay attention to a black womanShe is rather less dismissive of the other major fictional account Ann Perry s Tituba of Salem Village which she read halfway through writing her novel although she admits to being a bit surprised and disappointed because Ann Perry turned the story into a book for adolescents a story of hope and dynamism This was not the type of story that I wanted to tell I am not interested in giving role models to young peopleCond s novel gives Tituba back her past and her future but also her agency It opens brutally Abena my mother was raped by an English sailor on the deck of Christ the King one day in the year 16 while the ship was sailing for Barbados I was born from this act of aggression From this act of hatred and contemptCond s account is also very intentionally not a historical novel but the opposite Other than one brief two page chapter taken verbatim from the transcript of Tituba s historical trial testimony Cond says she was not interested at all in what her real life could have beenIndeed this is a highly playful novel in prison Tituba encounters the fictional character Hester Prynne from Hawthorne s The Scarlet Letter and the two have a deliberately rather anachronistic discussion of feminismCond s Tituba is also one blessed with special one could say from a Anglo Saxon perspective supernatural powers but ones she uses for good not evil When someone actually her soon to be lover Cond s Tituba is also a highly sexualised character first mentions as a warning while they are still in Barbados that some may see her as a witch she thinks What is a witch I noticed that when he said the word it was marked with disapproval Why should that be Why Isn t the ability to communicate with the invisible world to keep constant links with the dead to care for others and heal a superior gift of nature that inspires respect admiration and gratitude Conseuently shouldn t the witch if that s what this person whp has this gift is called be cherished and revered rather than fearedAnd imbuing her with these powers including her return to Barbados where she is urged to use them to lead a slave rebellion Cond s narration takes on a deliberately mock epic tome As she noted to her interviewer in the book Do not take Tituba too seriously please the element of parody is very important if you wish to fully comprehend TitubaAnd just as Miller although one suspects she would not welcome the comparison cleverly used The Crucible to make points about McCarthy America Cond notes that writing Tituba was an opportunity to express my feelings about present day America I wanted to imply that in terms of narrow mindedness hypocrisy and racism little has changes since the days of the PuritansA very readable novel but one with surprising depth

Moi Tituba sorcière Characters ò 2 Maryse Condé Ë 2 Characters Review Moi Tituba sorcière Urvient deux ans plus tard Là s'arrête l'histoire Maryse Condé la réhabilite l'arrache à cet oubli auuel elle avait été condamnée et pour finir la ramène à son pays natal la Barbade au temps des Nègres marrons et des premières révoltes d'esclave. It is risky to damn a clearly feminist text when you re a man Thankfully that is a risk I m happy to take There are times when we need to accept that uality does not mean ideology and I feel this is a perfect example thereofFor starters there is a decided discrepancy between the book s decided purpose giving a voice for a character in history who has been marginalized and the actual result of any speculative historical fiction This can be no a true take on who Tituba was than the menial information we may have from the Crucible and the historical texts which inspired both that and I Tituba If the real Tituba could come back and read this she may well be just as offended by the presumptions of this text as she would be of the mere footnote she registers in historical text There s also the fact that Tituba is a witch The text makes uite a bit of ado about the nature of the word she is not a witch in the negative sense that we read the word most often but she still conjures and brews and has magic at her fingertips This magic is real in terms of the book She can cure people with concoctions and charms influence fate with ritual sacrifice and even allow a man to speak with his dead family The horror of the witch trials was how the fervor grew like a flame and ended with so many innocent women imprisoned or slain for literally doing nothing By framing Tituba as a literal sorceress of her own sort it is harder to be sympathetic The reader knows she is a good witch but even without the religious overtones to Puritan society how many modern people would not still fear someone who if magic existed knew how to harness that energy We can look at the sexist and racist undertones of these decisions but that becomes little than a mask when the protagonist is no longer falsely accused especially when Tituba herself invokes venom against her tormentors with the same blindness they use to judge her as a black woman We understand yet something still rings falseNo less difficult is that Tituba in some way brings this upon herself She lives free in Barbados but in pursuing a man one known for his flightiness and trickery she finds herself enslaved as the wife of a slave There was fair warning from the magic world She ignores it Tituba unconstrained by the s of an incredibly conservative white population is very sexual but what keeps her ensnared time and time again through the novel is not this freedom of sexual expression but her inability to keep it separate from love From her first enslavement with Joe Indian to the final liaison leading to her death it is not men who trap her but herself who allows herself to wander into the snares Further it is she who practices her magic in a world that is already suspicious It is she who lets the children know of her powers We see what could be a strong female character continually undone not only by a world that is ideologically oppressive to what she is from the start but by her own naivete in how she forges her way in that worldBy the time Hester Prynne makes her way into the narrative I was asking myself who is still reading this This is the point where we leave the already tenuous historic elements behind for pure ideology Hester exists as a device another unfairly accused woman kept down by the patriarchy But Hester is so uintessentially fiction as a character not to say she could not be real but that she isn t and her existence in this text so immaterial to who that character is she becomes an elephant that everyone but Conde seems to notice in the room She is a fictional take on a fictional character which blows open the conceit of this being a real interpretation of Tituba than the very brief sketches left over from the witch trials Hester makes the suspension of disbelief we willingly engage in early on accepting the spiritual world feel all for naught It becomes artifice for a fully different agenda and is heavy handed in that delivery In the long run we re left with a story that becomes too self conscious of a subtext to do either the stated purpose of the text or the reader thereof much good
