Cahier d'un retour au pays natal - Aimé Césaire I had a class on Aimé Césaire at university years ago. I remember that reading Cahier d'un retour au pays natal was so difficult, but absolutely worthwhile. I think I spent more time preparing for this class than for any of the other ones that year (well, probaly with the exception of Latin...if I happened to take both classes the same semester...I really don't remember). That must have been the single most interesting class I had in French studies, not for any intersting discussions or analyses with/from students or lecturers (nope, certainly not with that bunch), but just for the genius work of Aimé Césaire. i probably would never have come across this writer if it hadn't been for the uni course. So, thank you Professor Pagni! :o)
