I had the chance to make an interview with Kristeva
and was told by her that she barely knows Fanon. She
hasn't read something by him.
But this is not so much her fault but more the situation
of Fanon's reception in France. Nobody barely knows him
last time in France, I started to ask admidst the university
students whether they know Fanon... no way... sometimes
they students from Martinique have heard his name and they
think that Fanon was a poet because a school is named after him
on the island he comes from...
I think it is symptomatic for the situation of the
(de)colonised mind in France.. and of course, worse in
other european countries...
