This chapter analyzes Faulkner’s impact on French West Africa. It recirculates and rereads Faulkner back though the Caribbean via Édouard Glissant, and through France via Maurice Coindreau. The chapter argues that West African writers can identify with the concerns in Faulkner’s fiction because “he tackles two primordial questions of the literature of young nations: language and the relationship with history.”

Keywords:   William Faulkner, French West Africa, Caribbean, Édouard Glissant, Maurice Coindreau
