V. Y. Mudimbe’s The Rift attempts to engage with the dilemma of postcolonial intellectuals re-using the discourse of colonial history and identity in order to write postcolonialism into existence. In her discussion of the novel, Marie-Anne Visoi focuses on an example of what happens when the reader is confronted with unfamiliar cultural norms. The presence of the implied author in the preface, the fragmentary character of the narrative which takes the form of a diary, the literary allusions, quotes and notes are all part of the deluding strategies used to upset the reader’s expectations of genre, but also to critique the postcolonial archive and question the role of contemporary intellectuals in relation to it.(Madelena Gonzalez)
