Edouard Glissant

Glissant, Edouard


Born Sept. 21, 1928, in Sainte-Marie, Martinique. Martinican writer (writes in French).

In Glissant’s work, which reflects the establishment of the national vonsciousness, the history and character of the country are interpreted in a generalized, romantic way. Glissant’s narrative poems Two Indias (1956) and Black Salt (1958) combine rich imagistic verse with rationalist structure. His play Mr. Toussaint (1961), about F. D. Toussaint-L’Ouverture, the leader of the Haitian revolution, and the novels The Lézarde River (1958) and The Fourth Century (1964) are characterized by romantic passion and an attempt to re-create the life of the people as it developed.
