Spacio-temporality in Selected Works by Dany Laferrriere: A Crafty Imbrication of Virtual Ecotone and Global Nodal Space

This paper takes a critical look at the novel manner in which Danny Laferriere weaves personal, collective and multifaceted imaginary spaces in which his narrator lives, while highlighting the erasure of such an imaginary world through a return to the physical tangible native country. In l’Enigme du retour (2009), the narrator carves for himself a universe in which he resides quasi-comfortably and tumultuously in other to escape the fact that his father just passed on, on the same land where both of them have been living, as Haitians exiled I Canada.
