Le eleven septembre, l. a. guerre en Afghanistan et en Irak, le populisme médiatique au pouvoir : les premières années du troisième millénaire ne pouvaient pas échapper à l'analyse ravageuse d'Umberto Eco. Il en ressort que depuis quelque temps, le monde marche à reculons, de plus en plus vite, de plus en plus dramatiquement.

Après l. a. chute du mur de Berlin, il a fallu exhumer de vieux atlas pour retrouver les frontières oubliées depuis l. a. guerre de 1914. De l. a. guerre froide, on s'est empressé de retourner aux guerres les plus chaudes. Nous avons ressuscité le vieux wrestle entre Islam et Chrétienté, et le cri ancestral de «Sauve qui peut, voilà les Turcs !» nous ramène au temps des Croisades. Le fantôme du Péril jaune resurgit, comme l'anti-darwinisme, l'antisémitisme, voire le contentieux que l'on croyait pourtant bien enterré entre l'Eglise et l'Etat...

Il semblerait que l'Histoire, à bout de souffle après les bonds qu'elle a effectués au cours des deux précédents millénaires, se soit affaissée sur elle-même et se précipite à reculons, comme une écrevisse.

Umberto Eco est né à Alexandrie, dans le Piémont, en 1932. Professeur de sémiotique et directeur de l'Ecole supérieure des études littéraires à l'Université de Bologne, il est l'auteur de nombreux essais dont remark voyager avec un saumon et de romans, Le Nom de los angeles Rose, Le Pendule de Foucault, L'Ile du jour d'avant, Baudolino et los angeles Reine Loana.

Lovelace achieves, like Anthony by different means, a deterritorialization of the dominant discourse on nationalism, insisting that it is not a prior condition, in any form, for self-fulfilment and achievement of individual identity. He goes beyond the displacement of the metadiscourse on race in Trinidadian nationalism to a displacement of nationalism itself as a means of self-realization and definition. R. James would see Lovelace as a product of a break in a nation's history, at the birth of post-colonial nationhood and all its disruptions of identity and ethics, but James would see Lovelace the national and native writer as an artist who recognized the universal truth of the sovereignty of individual identity and creativity, challenging the very nation-state that produced him.

But James is also right to call these writers national and native because of the confines of the national discourse they work within.
