Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
This book consists of four lectures and six interviews; it covers a wide range of topics central to Glissant's thought - such as creolization, langage, culture and identity, 'atavistic' versus 'composite cultures' - presented in a particularly accessible form because here Glissant interacts with the views of other people.
