Theological Reading of Four Novels by Marie Chauvet in Search of Christic Voices
|Author: ||Sandin-Fremaint, Pedro|
This work represents a pertinent supplement to the work of such figures as John Dominic Crossan, in exploring the problem of the reader in the theological approach to narrative. It proposes a hermeneutic that may be acceptable to the outsider. It also introduces the American reader to Haitian narrative in general, and to Marie Chauvet's work in particular, opening up an area of inquiry into the cultural production of a country beset by multifarious prejudices. This is one of the first serious attempts to bring the theology of Liberation into dialogue with the discipline of literature.
