Essai sur les essais dans la littrature des Antilles au tournant du xxe sicle
Abstract:This is an article on essays in French Caribbean literature at the end of the last century. The essay is one of the ambiguous genres of French Caribbean literature. It is frequently practised in the Caribbean in journals and newspapers, autobiographies and novels, short stories and theatre. Whether it appears collectively or individually, is written by one or various authors, the essay offers a loud and far-reaching voice and serves as Caliban's response to the questions of frustration, absence, and silence which are the consequences of slavery in the West Indies. The main concern of the essay at the end of the twentieth century is to create and organize a new Creole reason in politics, history, and literature.
