By Édouard Glissant, Nathanaël (Translator)


In this first English-language translation of Poetic Intention, Glissant argues for the importance of the global position of art. He states that a poem, in its intention, must never deny the "way of the world." Poetic Intention creates a new landscape for understanding the relationship between aesthetics and politics.
