About this book

A Poetics of Relation fosters a dialogue across islands and languages between established and lesser-known authors, bringing together archipelagic and diasporic voices from the Francophone and Hispanic Antilles. In this pan-diasporic study, Ferly shows that a comparative analysis of female narratives is often most pertinent across linguistic zones.

Reviews

'[This book]stands out among other comparative studies in the field by engaging Edouard Glissant's image of the rhizome and his theory of Relation to construct a pan-Caribbean approach that delineates a unique female literary tradition. Combining a comprehensive overview of foundational theories and questions with insightful close readings, Ferly offers a new direction for scholars and students of women's writing in the Caribbean.' Sally Barbour, professor of Romance Languages, Wake Forest University

'Ferly's innovative dialogue across race, ethnicity, islands, languages, and oceans, challenges colonial inheritances by engaging polyphonic Francophone, and Hispanophone Caribbean female narratives in a profusion of creative networks summoning the continually shifting matrix of the mangrove. A must-read for scholars of comparative Caribbean studies.' Catherine Reinhardt, Chapman University

'A solid contribution to studies on contemporary women's writings from the French and Spanish Caribbean rooted in the ecologically-minded and innovative paradigm of the mangrove.' - Dawn Duke, chair of Africana Studies and associate professor of Spanish and Portuguese, University of Tennessee
