Résumé

The literary movement Créolité (Creoleness) started with the publication of Éloge de la créolité (In Praise of Creoleness), co-authored by Bernabé, Chamoiseau, and Confiant in 1989.1 Créolité germinated as an extension of Césaire's Négritude and Glissant's Antillanité (Caribbeanness).2 Bernabé described the Creoleness movement as being in the same line of descent as Négritude and Caribbeanness (35). In their manifesto In Praise of Creoleness the triumvirate advocates the recognition of Creole identity as one that rejects purism. They further call for a return to Creole, lost in the ``deep ravine between a written expression pretending to be universalo-modern and traditional Creole orality enclosing a great part of our being'' (Bernabé et al. 96). They see French Caribbean writers as being confined in a stage of ``preliterature,'' a state of exteriority which makes them culturally dependent on French values in their writing practices. \textcopyright 2018 selection and editorial matter, Wiebke Beushausen, Miriam Brandel, Joseph Farquharson, Marius Littschwager, Annika McPherson and Julia Roth; individual chapters, the contributors.
