Synopsis

Joseph B\u00e9dier (1864-1938) was one of the most famous scholars of his day. He held prestigious posts and lectured throughout Europe and the United States, an activity unusual for an academic of his time. A scholar of the French Middle Ages, he translated Tristan and Isolde as well as France's national epic, The Song of Roland. B\u00e9dier was publicly committed to French hegemony, yet he hailed from a culture that belied this ideal-the island of R\u00e9union in the southern Indian Ocean.In Creole Medievalism, Michelle Warren demonstrates that B\u00e9dier's relationship to this multicultural and economically peripheral colony motivates his nationalism in complex ways. Simultaneously proud of his French heritage and nostalgic for the island, B\u00e9dier defends French sovereignty based on an ambivalent resistance to his creole culture. Warren shows that in the early twentieth century, influential intellectuals from R\u00e9union helped define the new genre of the "colonial novel," adopting a pro-colonial spirit that shaped both medieval and Francophone studies. Probing the work of a once famous but little understood cultural figure, Creole Medievalism illustrates how postcolonial France and R\u00e9union continue to grapple with histories too varied to meet expectations of national unity.
