This collection of essays explores concepts present in literatures in French that, since the 2007 manifesto, more and more critics, suspicious of the term Francophonie, now prefer to designate as litterature-monde (world literature). The book shows how the three movements of antillanite, creolite and litterature-monde each in their own way break with the past and distance themselves from the hexagonal centre. The critics in this collection show how writers seek to represent an authentic view of their history, culture, identities, reality and diversities. According to many of the contributors, creolization and litterature-monde offer new perspectives and possibly a new genre of literature. Ces essais explorent les concepts presents dans la litterature en francais, que depuis le manifeste de 2007, de plus en plus de critiques, suspicieux du terme francophonie preferent designer sous le terme de litterature-monde. Ce livre montre comment les trois mouvements antillanite, creolite et litterature-monde, bien qu'ils cherchent chacun a presenter une rupture, offrent aussi un but similaire de distanciation avec le centre hexagonal.

Les critiques de ce recueil demontrent comment les ecrivains cherchent a representer une vision authentique de leur histoire, leur culture, leurs identites, leur realite et leur diversite. Selon de nombreux contributeurs a ce recueil, la creolisation ou la litterature-monde offrent de nouvelles perspectives et la possibilite d'un nouveau genre de litterature.
