Book Review: Re-Membering the Black Atlantic: on the Poetics and Politics of Literary Memory by Lars Eckstein (2006)
Keywords:African, re-membering, cultural memories
Eckstein (2006) notes that the Atlantic slave trade has continuously haunted the cultural memories of Europe, Africa, and America. In fact, everyone wishes to forget about it. Many of the victims of the African origin tried to run away from the sites that they got traumatized, while those who were enlightened especially, the Westerners preferred to remain unconscious to these upsetting complicity between slavery and enlightenment. In the last few years, many fiction writers have made a decision to venture in re-membering the Black Atlantic.
