Carrie Noland approaches Negritude as an experimental, text-based poetic movement developed by diasporic authors of African descent through the means
This aesthetic subjectivity, transmitted by the words on the page, must be actualized―performed, reiterated, and created anew―by each reader, at each occasion of reading. Lyric writing and lyric reading therefore attenuate the link between author and phenomenalized voice. Yet the Negritude poem insists upon its connection to lived experience even as it emphasizes its printed form. Ironically, a purely formalist reading would have to ignore the ways formal―and not merely thematic―elements point toward the poem's own conditions of emergence.
Blending archival research on the historical context of Negritude with theories of the lyric "voice," Noland argues that Negritude poems present a challenge to both form-based (deconstructive) theories and identity-based theories of poetic representation. Through close readings, she reveals that the racialization of the author places pressure on a lyric regime of interpretation, obliging us to reconceptualize the relation of author to text in poetries of the first person.
