A Poetics of Relation: Caribbean Women Writing at the Millennium 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. This study
underscores the socio-cultural impact of emigration and the perpetual self-redefinition that results
from this phenomenon. Without denying the enduring impact of former colonial divisions or
minimizing the specificities to each bloc in the region, Ferly shows that a comparative analysis of
female narratives is often most pertinent across linguistic zones.

A Poetics of Relation
Caribbean Women Writing at the Millennium

“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.”—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
