GLISSANT POETICS OF RELATION PDF

Born in Martinique in , Glissant earned a doctorate from the Sorbonne. Some of the metaphors of local identity Glissant favored--the hinterland or lack of it , the maroon or runaway slave , the creole language--proved lasting and influential. In Poetics of Relation, Glissant turns the concrete particulars of Caribbean reality into a complex, energetic vision of a world in transformation. He sees the Antilles as enduring suffering imposed by history, yet as a place whose unique interactions will one day produce an emerging global consensus. Arguing that the writer alone can tap the unconscious of a people and apprehend its multiform culture to provide forms of memory capable of transcending "nonhistory," Glissant defines his "poetics of relation"--both aesthetic and political--as a transformative mode of history, capable of enunciating and making concrete a French-Caribbean reality with a self-defined past and future.

Start your review of Poetics of Relation Write a review Shelves: criticism-and-research I have read different sections at different points over the last two years. I will continue to reread it and let its wisdom and proximity to Relation sink in. There is a documentary Manthia Diawara made about his conversations with Glissant on an ocean voyage across the Atlantic I need to check out next.

The keys for me are: abyss, arrow-like vs. An excerpt from a research paper I wrote on this methodology: Edouard Glissant, in his text Poetics of Relation, finds it impossible and limiting to attempt to grasp the world, or all its peoples, in any type of system, or to simply assimilate all working classes into one universal, political melting pot of humanity Glissant A beautiful methodology which breaks down constructs of worldview and, in essence, helps us stop playing God and to get on with embracing others, being oneself an "other".

An excerpt from a research paper I wrote on this methodology: Edouard Glissant, in his text Poetics of Relation, finds it impossible and limiting to attempt to grasp the world, or all its peoples, in any type of system, or to simply assimilate all working classes into one universal, political melting pot of humanity Glissant Thus the only totality we can consider for our world is one of chaos, not in a meaningless, nihilistic way, but in a way that will always escape our full understanding and categorizing.

Edouard Glissant offers not a universal, idealized view of language and identity, but a heterogenous process of uprooting the cultural artifacts of consciousness we carry, by allowing them to be informed and transformed by others. Glissant calls this the process of creolization, using the Colonial example of the French language being intermingled and changed within local Caribbean dialects Glissant 5.

French is not the dominant language used to subvert populations though it was thought to be by the colonizers , nor is it ignored by the colonized. Rather, through the relations between peoples, the process mixes these languages and creates something new, unique and localized to the situation. This process, rhizomatic in its movements, is interdependent on the relations between people, bridging the abyss of difference that separates humans.

Poetics of Relation

Born in Martinique in , Glissant earned a doctorate from the Sorbonne. Some of the metaphors of local identity Glissant favored—the hinterland or lack of it , the maroon or runaway slave , the creole language—proved lasting and influential. In Poetics of Relation, Glissant turns the concrete particulars of Caribbean reality into a complex, energetic vision of a world in transformation. He sees the Antilles as enduring suffering imposed by history, yet as a place whose unique interactions will one day produce an emerging global consensus. Arguing that the writer alone can tap the unconscious of a people and apprehend its multiform culture to provide forms of memory capable of transcending "nonhistory," Glissant defines his "poetics of relation"—both aesthetic and political—as a transformative mode of history, capable of enunciating and making concrete a French-Caribbean reality with a self-defined past and future. How rewarding to find a text in the last moments of this century that has absorbed quantum physics, jazz, modernist poetics, mathematics, and all for the sake of adding to the discourse of our planetary reality. Beautifully, Glissant leaves behind the decrepit vocabulary of the sterile paradigm, and invents concepts logically parallel to those in other fields--like relations to relativity--in order to observe Caribbean and global communities in a fresh way.

Édouard Glissant

In January , Glissant was asked by Jacques Chirac to take on the presidency of a new cultural centre devoted to the history of slave trade. While his first novel portrays the political climate in s Martinique, through the story of a group of young revolutionaries, his subsequent work focuses on questions of language, identity, space, history, and knowledge and knowledge production. For example, in his text Poetics of Relation, Glissant explores the concept of opacity, which is the lack of transparency, the untransability, the unknowability. And for this reason, opacity has the radical potentiality for social movements to challenge and subvert systems of domination.

He is central not only to the burgeoning field of Caribbean studies, but also to the newly flourishing literary scene in the French West Indies.
