In Poetics of Relation, Edouard Glissant argues 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. The most important theoretician from the Caribbean writing today.... 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. -- Judith Graves Miller, University of Wisconsin, Madison"
