Édouard Glissant (1928-2011)

The writer Édouard Glissant, born in Martinique, died in France today. He won the Prix Renaudot for La lézarde (The Ripening) in 1958, and after a visit to Rowan Oak, William Faulkner's former home in Oxford, Mississippi, published Faulkner, Mississippi in 1996. It's a little early for obituaries, perhaps, but this link is to an article in English on Édouard Glissant.
