520    Rethinking Négritude through Léon-Gontran Damas analyses 
       four cases in which Damasian Négritude shifted through 
       generic experimentation: Pigments (1937), Retour de Guyane
       (1938), Veillées noires (1943) and Black-Label (1956). In 
       doing so, it also advances scholarship on Damas (1912-
       1978) in two ways. On the one hand, it undertakes the 
       crucial and in-depth research needed to challenge the 
       understanding of Négritude as a bipartite (Césaire and 
       Senghor) phenomenon. On the other hand, it offers an 
       innovative reading of Damas whose work deserves more 
       complete consideration than it has received thus far. 
       Reading this essay will illuminate Damas's works and their
       relationship to one another, thus demonstrating the 
       continuity of Damasian Négritude. F. Bart Miller holds a 
       PhD in French Studies from the University of Liverpool. He
       is a specialist in French Caribbean Literature, and his 
       other publications have appeared in International Journal 
       of Francophone Studies, Romance Studies and in the volume 
       Adaptation: Studies in French and Francophone Culture, in 
       the series Modern French Identities, with Peter Lang
