This chapter is a close reading of Maryse Condé's novel I, Tituba, Black Witch of Salem. In particular, I read Condé's novel as proposing a method of subjunctive reading attuned to deictic specificity, a method that I elaborate in the rest of the book. Taking as my point of departure the argument that “witchcraft” is a concept appearing in sites of colonial contact, I trace how Tituba reads through indicative claims about witchcraft toward a subjunctive scene of possibilities for selfhood, pleasure, and abolitionist worlding.
