Abstract

Aroha, Aloha, Alofa, by Andy Leleisi`uao. 2011. Acrylic on canvas, 25 cm x 25 cm I wanted to convey the idea of exchange and blessing, as a crossed lei becomes a full circle when placed around a neck. literary and academic works in French Polynesia, from exquisitely intimate memoirs to penetrating analyses of the structural transformations of cultural systems both scintillatingly minute and foundationally vast; from heartwrenching novels to playful, improvisational poetry to subtle recherché debates about the role of the academy, especially linguistics, in national politics. If all of the authors reviewed here resonate with Hau`ofa's vision of Oceania as a fabric of connections, liaisons, and rapprochements, they also remind us that anglophone Pacific scholars and writers need to work to meet their francophone colleagues halfway. Two exemplary edited volumes and a new English translation of Marie Claude Teissier-Landgraf's celebrated novel offer a glimpse of the vitality of recent scholarship and literary craft in the French Pacific and of some themes and trends in regional conversations. For those who have a fair reading comprehension of French, Elise Huffer and Bruno Saura's very fine volume is an excellent place to start. Showcasing current writing about French Polynesia by
