Aimé Césaire, born in Martinique in 1913, was one of the founding voices of the négritude movement in Francophone literature, and his long poem Cahier d'un retour au pays natal (1936) is one of the movement’s essential texts. A new translation of the work from Archipelago by John Berger and Anya Bostock presents Césaire’s ‘break into the forbidden’ to a new generation. John Berger will be in conversation about the author’s life, work and legacy with the poet and translator David Constantine
