THE PLACE OF SPEECH IN THE GUIANAS LITERATURES

Natali Fabiana da Costa e Silva

Resumo


The literature produced in the Guianas, a region in the extreme north of South America is a literature marked by cultural and linguistic ethnic plurality, the thematization of social contradictions and the discourse on the marginalization of a region that became known as "Green Hell". Of little reverberation and almost no prestige outside the Guianas territory, the narratives that compose this space inscribed in the heterogeneity are populated by characters silenced historically, as enslaved women, prisoners, plantations workers, the "marrons", among others, but who speak, despite being intermediated by a writer, as representatives of cultures not valued and / or little known. In this sense, this article will discuss the literary production in the Guianas, notably the French Guiana and Suriname literature, addressing, more specifically, the way in which this literature questions the current literary paradigms and rescues the problematic of other voices whose legitimacy is continually put in question.
