This bilingual collection illustrates the concept of the `Warrior of the Imaginary', as defined by Patrick Chamoiseau, in a multi-faceted corpus of texts. Francophone contributions explore the role of the Caribbean writer in works by Chamoiseau, Edouard Glissant, Daniel Maximin, and Joseph Zobel. Essays in English focus not only on familiar writers (Dionne Brand, Edwidge Danticat, Wilson Harris, Jamaica Kincaid, Caryl Phillips, Derek Walcott) but also on less widely studied voices (Robert Antoni, Albert Helman). Other contributions deal with such `fighting areas' as Afro-Brazilian music, film, and Mutabaruka's militant poetry. The whole testifies to a surprisingly coherent imaginary, one that goes beyond the `balkanization' of the Caribbean archipelago. Dans ce collectif bilingue, le concept de `Guerrier de l'imaginaire' tel que defini par Patrick Chamoiseau est illustre par un corpus de textes varies. Plusieurs des articles en francais engagent directement le cycle romanesque de l'auteur martiniquais, d'autres etendent l'interrogation de la fonction de l'auteur caribeen a l'ecriture glissantienne, maximinienne et zobelienne. Etudes en anglais portent sur des ecrivains dont le renom n'est plus a faire (Dionne Brand, Edwidge Danticat, Wilson Harris, Jamaica Kincaid, Caryl Phillips, Derek Walcott) mais donnent aussi la parole a des auteurs jusqu'a present moins etudies (Robert Antoni, Albert Helman). Enfin, quelques-unes des contributions portent sur d'autres `terrains de lutte', comme la musique afro-bresilienne, le cinema, ou la poesie militante de Mutabaruka. L'ensemble temoigne d'un imaginaire etonnamment confluant, au-dela de la `balkanisation' de l'archipel caribeen.
