Abstract

A Schizophrenia That Wasn't One ´ Edouard Glissant and Poetry, Painting and Politics in 1950s Paris suzy cater ´ In 2007, Edouard Glissant's contribution to the polemical book, Pour une ´ litterature-monde, came in the form of an interview. Yet instead of examining issues that the text's editors, Michel le Bris and Jean Rouaud, were eager to highlight, such as the use of the term "francophone" in the French literary system or the purportedly hermetic nature of modern metropolitan writing,1 Glissant spends the majority of his contribution reflecting on the aesthetics of his favorite authors and discussing principles behind his own poetics.2 The title he selects for the interview--"Solitaire et solidaire"--also appears to caution against grouping his views too emphatically with those of the rest of the book's authors. When asked what exactly he means by this phrase, his response is enigmatic. After evoking the solitude necessary ´ for literary creation, he remarks that while he has "toujours travaille avec mes compatriotes antillais," this has coincided with his simultaneous ´ involvement in "d'autres activite s auxquelles ils ne participaient pas, ` ´ ´ comme mon travail avec des amis poe tes franc ais de ma ge ne ration
