Martinica / Poeta Edouard Glissant / Terremoto de Haití / La cohe´e du Lamentin
Siglo XXI


Just five years before the terrible seismic event that has recently afflicted Haiti, in a book titled La cohe´e du Lamentin, the Martinican writer Edouard Glissant, an intellectual heir to Frantz Fanon, alluded to existing premonitions of great geological catastrophes looming over the Caribbean in order to meditate about what he called ‘la pense´e du Tremblement’ (2005: 128) (thinking about Temblor). In the word ‘Tremblement’, as capitalized by Glissant, he gathers the musical, rhythmical, psychological and geological denotations it has in French, including the sense of ‘earthquake’, in order to convey an ethics and an aesthetics of utopian thought.
