Abstract

Two novels of Myriam Warner-Vieyra have been studied, they are: Le Quimboiseur l’avait dit published in 1980 and Juletane in 1982. She is married to a Senegalese; being Guadeloupian, she represents a middle ground between two cultures and the Francophone African and Caribbean Literatures. Her style is simple presenting existential realities as she places premium on dreams, fantasies and the subconscious in order to create psychological explanations of the characters in her novels. Further, her style may not be reduced to simple linear narration of events but a complicated knot of imagination that ties with the experiences of jealousy, failed love, broken marriage, manic rage, suicide and related themes.
