CFP MLA 2020 : Figuring Modernism
Language is a crucial aspect of the Francophone world, on the threshold between French and Creole, or other indigenous languages. The decision to write in a certain language can be simply dictated by the author’s feelings, or it can become a true political statement. As well, choosing one does not always mean that the other will remain silent: whether such process is carefully crafted, or on the contrary happens on a subconscious level, languages influence one another, and such influx tend to surface in poems, novels, songs, and other forms of expression.
