CORPUS OF EARLY FRANCOPHONE LITERATURE FROM THE INDIAN OCEAN,

WRITTEN AND ORAL, FROM THE ORIGINS TO INDEPENDENCE (18th century-1960)

 

A COMPLETE CORPUS OF FRANCOPHONE LITERATURE

FROM INDIAN OCEAN COUNTRIES

 

With the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs


This Corpus gives access, as completely as possible, to the whole of Francophone written and oral literature from the Indian Ocean, from the origins (18th century) to Independence (1960, or death of authors).

The literary production of the countries of the Indian Ocean was considerable as early as the 18th century in Reunion Island and Mauritius, and the 20th century was particularly rich for Madagascan literature. In the 18th and 19th centuries a number of these works were published on local printing presses by local editors and their distribution was limited. Some editions are now known only by rare copies in a few libraries, in private collections or in family archives in the native country.
The oral literature of the Indian Ocean was collected by intellectuals or by religious communities. It is to be found in specialised volumes or dispersed in didactic works (dictionaries, grammars, anthologies) from which we have extracted this literary heritage, which is both popular and scholarly, often very ancient.

This Corpus is based on a great work of bibliographical search, collection and establishment of the texts, which required some twenty years.

No library, public or private, or research centre posseses a collection of this importance, which gives easy access to scrupulous editions of a little-known but very rich literature.

The text
The basic text chosen for the electronic edition corresponds to the original text as it has come down to us.

Editing levels
The original text is edited in its identical original form. The French version of oral literary works is accompanied by a version in the original language, when that version exists.
