In Poetics of Relation, Glissant turns the concrete details of Caribbean fact right into a complicated, lively imaginative and prescient of a global in transformation. He sees the Antilles as enduring ache imposed through historical past, but as a spot whose exact interactions will in the future produce an rising worldwide consensus. Arguing that the author by myself can faucet the subconscious of a humans and recognize its multiform tradition to supply types of reminiscence in a position to transcending "nonhistory," Glissant defines his "poetics of relation"--both aesthetic and political--as a transformative mode of heritage, in a position to enunciating and making concrete a French-Caribbean truth with a self-defined previous and destiny. Glissant's notions of identification as developed in relation and never in isolation are germane not just to discussions of Caribbean creolization but in addition to our realizing of U.S. multiculturalism. In Glissant's view, we come to work out that relation in all its senses--telling, listening, connecting, and the parallel cognizance of self and surroundings--is the foremost to remodeling mentalities and reshaping societies.
This translation of Glissant's paintings preserves the resonating caliber of his prose and makes the richness and ambiguities of his voice obtainable to readers in English.
