Nicole Cage-Florentiny is one of Martinique's most prolific female writers, albeit little known and even less studied. In this interview she explores the role of women in Martinican society, the reason for disturbed malefemale relationships, problems with adolescents and issues in education. She explains how her upbringing has influenced her work and how her Judeo-Christian education informs what she writes. Her interest in psychotherapy becomes evident in her continuing search to understand people and their actions, and in her attempt to look into their psyches. However, despite Cage-Florentiny's brutal depiction of Martinican society and her relentless portrayal of taboo subjects such as rape, incest and homosexuality, her works express a desire for a new humanism and a future for healthy malefemale relationships.
