This text is one of the series of "Exeter French Texts" - works of the past which are of importance for their literary and historical value, but which have not been readily availabloe to scholars. The interest of "Ourika", first published in 1823, is in the quallity of its writing and of its analysis of a character suffering as a result of the inflexible tenets of the society of her time. Based on facts which occurred within the author's family, it is recognised as the best of the published novels of Madame de Duras, and was a best-seller of its time.
"The combined themes of race, class and the condition of women make Ourika a work of exceptional interest. Little situates the work precisely in historical context and expertly evaluates its intrinsic literary quality." -Modern Language Review
"Professor Little''s thorough edition of this ''minor masterpiece'' (John Fowles) provides a valuable guide to the author, the work''s role in the slavery debate, its stylistic skill, a cautious treatment of feminist readings, and a sense of its general value as a study of an alienated individual." -French Studies
Roger Little was Professor of French (1776) at Trinity College Dublin until his retirement in 1998. He has an outstanding record of scholarship in French and francophone writing, with particular interests in sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean. His academic work has mainly concentrated on modern French poetry and the representation of Blacks in Francographic literature. He has edited several volumes of Textes litteraires for University of Exeter Press. The French government has conferred upon him the rank of Chevalier de l'Ordre National du Merite and he has been awarded the Prix de l'Academie francaise: medaille de vermeil du rayonnement de la langue francaise.
