The Baton Rouge Interviews

with Édouard Glissant and Alexandre Leupin

Translated by Katie M. Cooper

Liverpool University Press

The Glissant Translation Project

  • Because of its spontaneous, conversational format, this collection is unique in the accessibility it offers to Glissant's thought
  • Original in that Glissant addresses issues which he had not previously brought up in his writings
  • A startling breadth of erudition, including consideration of literatures not only of the West, but also of Asia, Africa, the pre- and post-Columbian Americas
  • With his concept of Relation, Glissant establishes the vital and oracular function of poetics in all societies, and by extension, a future for Humanities
  • A unique, demanding, but beautiful language - Glissant unfolds his thought not in the staleness of an academic tract, but in the practice of a poetic vision
