Abstract [fr]

The objective of this thesis is to study Negritude as literary movement expressed through the words of Aimé Césaire in his poetry Cahier d’un retours au pays natal. The relation between the poetry and historical events as well as the relation between the poetry and the author are examined. The analysis is conducted from the book chosen extracts that are examined in relation to identified characteristics of the negritude movement and the poetic expression. The analysis shows that the poetry of Aimé Césaire expresses fundamental values and attributes found within the negritude movement. The language used in the poetry is aggressive and to some extent contradictory. The "I" and "me" have a central role in the poetry when expressing negritude values and attributes. The revalorisation of the black man and the renaissance of the negritude movement are central themes in the poetry. The author himself is essential for the expression, which is characterised by being subjective rather than objective.
