dc.description.abstractThe dissertation captures the pluralistic intertextuality that underlines the question of Creolization in Glissant's Tout-monde and Traité du Tout-monde. Respectively a novel and an essay, both works are complementary of one another. The novel exposes the creativeness of the process of Creolization at work while the essay strives to theoretically rephrase its emphatic expressiveness. Therefore, themes such as atavic and composite identity, rhizome, space experienced in the Tout-monde world are reframed and revisited in the essay Traité du Tout-monde. The dissertation depicts as well the evolution of the thematic of Creolization through a process of constant implementation and reappropriation. In effect, the glissantian concept of Creolization can be explained by the refusal of a limited / delimited cultural identity portrayed in Creolity, Négritude, or Francophonie for a more suitable one captured in the Deleuzian rhizomatic poetics, the Segalenian exotism, and finally the Faulknerian vision of filiation. It puts forth and analyses the constant homogeneous and heterogeneous interplay between the novel Tout-monde and the essay Traité du Tout-monde.
