Forthcoming: “The Collected Poems of Édouard Glissant”


The Collected Poems of Édouard Glissant, translated by Jeff Humphries and Melissa Manolas, and edited (with an introduction) by Jeff Humphries, will be on bookshelves in June 2019, published by University of Minnesota Press.

Description: This volume collects and translates—most for the first time—the nine volumes of poetry published by Édouard Glissant, one of the great writers of the twentieth century. The poems bring to life what Glissant calls “an archipelago-like reality,” partaking of the exchanges between Europe and its former colonies, between humans and their geographies, between the poet and the natural world.
