Édouard Glissant

Liverpool University Press

A perplexing title! Mathieu Béluse is a character from Glissant’s novels, and the chapter contains little explicitly on the Treatise. There are memories of Glissant’s childhood and adolescence, focusing on his attitudes to time and space, and fascination with distant countries. One section is devoted to his memories of World War 2 in Martinique. He praises the strength in adversity of Caribbean women. The themes of place, landscapes and identity return, along with a new emphasis on errance (wandering).
