Glissant forgotten?

Share this article with your friends.
You did not think I had forgotten Glissant, did you?! Here's a good occasion to meander on the Glissant side.

You might remember I find reading his texts, or rather understanding their meaning, rather difficult. The language is poetic, dense, flowery. I have discovered the best approach to his thinking: hearing Glissant read his texts. Check out the extraordinary reading in the clip below (you need to fastforward the introduction which is not relevant). The voice and accent are uniquely poetic, communicating through our ears and our eyes the essence of the text.
