Abstract:This article focuses on distinctive traits of poetics in the works of Caribbean thinkers, its critique of colonialism and slavery, its orientation toward the world and attention to the creativity of survival. It draws on writers who have influenced my work—particularly Aimé Césaire, Édouard Glissant, and Sylvia Wynter—to give the reader a sense of the textures of their works.
